JDM and Best Western, Inc. have submitted a joint proposal to the City of Phoenix to redevelop their properties at the NEC of 24th Street and Arizona Biltmore Circle into a modern mixed-use development in keeping with the area’s ongoing resurgence.
The location is slightly more than one mile from 24th Street and Camelback Road, which was one of Urban Land Institute’s “10 Hottest Intersections in Phoenix” last year. (AZBEX, Sept. 15, 2017)
JDM will redevelop its property with a roughly 215KSF office development that includes a retail component, a hotel or an approximately 320-unit multifamily development to replace the existing office property, which it calls “tired and dated”.
BWI will create a flagship Best Western Premier-branded hotel that includes offices for BWI employees, dining and recreational space and other hotel amenities next to its existing offices.
