Plans for a proposed apartment complex in downtown Tempe that divided the community has been withdrawn by the developer, reports The Arizona Republic.
The move came following a number of proposed revisions to the project and attempts to appease concerns of nearby neighbors and members of the Tempe City Council.
Urban Development Partners had proposed a 13-story apartment complex on less than 2 acres of city-owned land at the corner of University Drive and Farmer Avenue. The city approved a deal with the firm in 2007 to develop several city-owned parcels along Farmer Avenue. Urban Development Partners has since developed two apartments as well as the Yard featuring popular restaurant Culinary Dropout.
