One of the pioneers who helped reinvigorate downtown Phoenix nearly a decade ago with a risky condo project wants to take another risk — this time in downtown Mesa.

Habitat Metro — known for Portland Place Condominiums, Portland on the Park and the recently opened FOUND:RE boutique hotel — wants to bring a 14- or 15-story hotel and apartment complex across the street from the Mesa Arts Center.

“We think the time for Mesa to do something like this is right now. The ingredients are there: Light rail, education, the arts,” said Tim Sprague, Habitat Metro principal.

The Mesa City Council gave unanimous approval earlier this week to begin project negotiations with a subsidiary of Habitat Metro.
