Downtown Phoenix: A 'Perfect Storm' For Revitalization
"The push to remake Phoenix's city center is monumental in scope and cost. It's staggering in complexity, as several major new projects jockey for space and funding. The visions build upon each other in full view of skeptics who question the need for any public investment downtown...
The "blueprint of the future," as Phoenix is calling it, calls for a 15,000-student Arizona State University downtown campus less than a mile from a bioscience center filled with thousands of workers and researchers. The city's convention center is being tripled in size to attract more events, prompting the city to commit to building a 1,000-room hotel with public money."
