Core Campus proposed its Southside student housing complex known as The Hub early in 2015, but it wasn’t until the first hearings early in 2016 that neighbors and the public learned the details. Nearly two years later, the Hub has been approved for up to five stories and 591 beds, with frontage on South Milton, Mike’s Pike and Phoenix Avenue.
Picture of The Hub worth thousand words
To the editor:
A picture really is worth a thousand words. Until I saw the conceptual drawing of The Hub in Sunday’s Arizona Daily Sun, I couldn’t really picture the 5-story student housing development. Now the vision of this planned monstrosity is seared into my brain like a bad dream. This type of development is so completely out of character with the Southside that I can’t believe the project has gotten this far.
