Tempe’s Development Review Commission will consider plans for a new 18-story Westin Hotel at 11 E. 7th St. at its Sept. 26th meeting.
The project will feature between 260-290 rooms, 1,800SF of retail space, 1,400SF of restaurant and 12KSF of conference area. The total planned building area is nearly 277KSF on 0.85 acres.
Owner/developer CAI Investments, LLC has requested an Amended Planned Area Development and Development Plan Review for the luxury hotel.
The address, east of Mill Avenue and north of University Drive, had been previously planned for The Standard at Tempe, a 26-story 582KSF mixed-use site with 355 student housing units. The city council rejected plans for that project in June of last year.
