Zoning permit crashes for planned skyscrapers near Brophy campus

A developer scrapped plans for a 400-foot tall skyscraper at the corner of Central Avenue and Camelback Road over concerns of building height.

The building was going to be a mixture of retail shops, condominiums and hotels; three large, 750-unit towers, an eight floor parking structure, and stations for passing buses and light rail trams, according to a Phoenix Planning Department document obtained by The Roundup.The Phoenix Planning Department recommended the City Council not approve the project because of height concerns on the lot that bisects the Light Rail route.
