Microsoft’s secretive metro-Phoenix project, which documents describe as “a five-building technology center,” is set to go before the Goodyear City Council on Monday.
A brief, 14-minute discussion before the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission last week included a staff presentation that was light on details. The commission recommended that the council approve the rezone request, which included:
Increasing building height from 50 feet to 60 feet.
Increasing how much of the land can have buildings.
Building with a metal facade.
Using chain-link fencing.
The applicant’s attorney, Scottsdale-based Jordan Rose, made no mention of the tech giant by name and declined to give a presentation.
