Scottsdale-based Five Star Development officials — those who are building the Ritz-Carlton Paradise Valley Resort Community — deliberated with the town’s Planning Commission once again to discuss a special use permit amendment for a minimal height increase on five of its buildings.
The request, officials say, was more of a formality based on interpretation of the submitted plans, rather than a petition to gain more height.
On Dec. 18, the Paradise Valley Planning Commission discussed a minor special use permit amendment for Ritz-Carlton area A1, at 6651 N. Palmeraie Blvd., near the northeast corner of Mockingbird Lane and Lincoln Drive.
Scottsdale-based Five Star Development, which was founded by prominent developer Jerry Ayoub, is the entity that is bringing the Paradise Valley Ritz-Carlton development proposal forward and is represented by Jason Morris of Withey Morris PLC.
