A student housing project proposed on a piece of land currently home to the former Jeld-Wen Windows and Doors facility on Butler Avenue and Sawmill Road might no longer be a possibility.

During Tuesday’s Flagstaff City Council meeting, a 5-2 vote denied a request to rezone the property from industrial use to high-density residential and commercial.

The development, which had been proposed by the Houston-based McGrath Real Estate Partners, would have held 268 units and more than 800 beds. The Flagstaff Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously  approved the rezoning request last month.

Similar student housing developments have historically proven controversial with many members of the public, but based on the emails received by city staff, the project had been received more positively.
