The City of Phoenix subcommittee in charge of urban planning and economic development moved a swath of decisions Wednesday regarding the rehabilitation of historic properties and street revitalization plans on to the full City Council.

Rehabilitating Historic Properties

The committee of four voted in favor of granting protection to the warehouse at 101 E. Jackson Street under the Warehouse and Threatened Building Grant, a fund which seeks to protect historic buildings from decay or demolition in the downtown area.

The building, known as the Western Wholesale Drug Company Warehouse, was built in 1925 and notably housed a sports bar and eatery owned by rock star Alice Cooper from 1998 to 2017. The building is currently being leased by Equality Heath, an organization which seeks to provide healthcare to underserved communities.
