The project would replace the old Mountain Bell Plaza building [designed by noted local architect Al Beadle], which will be torn down, and feature independent living and retirement facilities.  Qwest sold the building in 2003.  Developers have been working on the 690-unit project for three years and said central Phoenix needs this type of project.  It’s aimed at baby boomers hoping to retire in Phoenix.
