Phoenix vintage warehouses slated for demolition as part of entertainment district
The Jackson Street Entertainment District LLC has filed a rezoning request (Z-07-78-08) and Minor General Plan Amendment (GPA-CC-1-08-8) for a 12-acre site at the southwest corner of 4th Street and Jackson in Phoenix’s historic Warehouse District. The request would change the zoning from Warehouse Overlay, Downtown core, A-1 with two historic preservation properties to Planned Unit Development (PUD). The requested Minor General Plan Amendment would change the designation from Industrial to Mixed-Use. New construction heights in the district as part of the plan include 235′, 215′, and 160′ buildings. It is believed that several vintage (historically-eligible) warehouses are slated for demolition.
