On the south side of the property, fronting University Drive, Opus would build a 14-story hotel with up to 230 rooms. More than 30,000 square feet of ground-level retail space would allow for shops and restaurants, and the project also would include a parking garage with more than 1,000 spaces, with about 200 of those set aside for public parking.
The 240-foot-tall main residential tower, topped by a 20th-floor “amenity deck” offering views of the Valley, would be among Tempe’s tallest buildings, likely ranking fifth by the time it’s completed. The West Sixth complex (formerly Centerpoint Condominiums) along Mill Avenue has the city’s tallest building at 339 feet.
