Tempe plans to buy historic Monti’s La Casa Vieja for $10


By Jerod MacDonald-Evoy | Arizona Republic

One of the Valley’s oldest buildings, the adobe home of Arizona politician Carl Hayden which became a popular restaurant, could be sold to Tempe for $10.

The proposal is easing worries about the former Monti’s La Casa Vieja, now referred to as the Hayden House, which sat empty and in growing disrepair after closing in 2014.

The developer who owns the historic building began restoration work earlier this year after city leaders raised concerns about a fire in an adjacent shed and other problems. The developer also agreed to sell the building to the city in an amended development agreement the Tempe City Council will vote on Aug. 30

Victor Linoff, a Tempe Historic Preservation Foundation member, called the revised deal “the most encouraging word we have heard since Monti’s closed in 2014.”
