The Hub has won.
A Pima County Superior Court judge on Friday denied the appeal of the Flagstaff Board of Adjustment’s decision to allow construction of a student housing complex, known as The Hub 2.0.
Judge James Marner, who was invited to hear the case due to local judges citing conflicts of interest, ruled that while plaintiff 120 Cottage Place, LLC, had standing to appeal the board’s decision, the appeal was denied on merits of the case.
The main argument in the case, which was also the main argument to the Board of Adjustment, was whether a commercial block type building, like The Hub, is allowed under the parcel’s zoning, which includes a T5 (Transect, or transitional) zone and a T4 N.1-O zone.
