Ward 6 Tucson Councilman, Steve Kozachik is reporting significant progress has been made with the Benedictine Monastery development at 800 N Country Club. In concert with the public meetings, Ross Rulney and his team have reached an agreement with Kozachik. Preserving the monastery has been the prime goal of Kozachik and to minimize the height and massing on the property.
Rulney’s original plan featured two buildings north and south of the monastery with a height of 86 feet and a third building on the east with a height of 55 feet.
It was the 86-foot, seven-story building as first proposed by the developer that caused Kozochik concern because that is what the existing zoning allowed. As an alternative, Kozachik proposed a 40-foot-tall student housing project with possible demolition of the monastery and no public voice in the discussion.
