Developer says there is little wiggle room on the height of the proposed building

By Angela Gonzales | Phoenix Business Journal

After two hours of passionate testimony before Phoenix City Council about whether a $75 million luxury condominium high-rise should be built on the Phoenix Country Club parking lot, the issue has yet to be resolved.

If approved, Scottsdale-based Sunbelt Holdings Inc. will develop the 125-unit community, said John Graham, president and CEO of Sunbelt Holdings. Graham has many supporters from the business community and neighborhood, but several neighbors also don’t like the idea of a high-rise tower, saying “height is blight.”

After hearing from several people on both sides of the issue, Laura Pastor — who represents District 4, which includes the contentious country club site — motioned for a continuance rather than a vote at the Feb. 20 council meeting.
