More major changes are coming to downtown Phoenix, as a city transit center gets transformed into a new development comprising more than 1.1 million square feet. The $231 million project was approved by Phoenix City Council on April 17.
It’s happening at 300 North Central Avenue, current site for the Central Station Transit Center that’s a hub for Valley Metro bus and light rail transportation. The center sits on the northwest corner of Central Avenue and Van Buren Street, just south of Civic Space Park, where Janet Echelman’s vortex-shaped sculpture dominates the urban skyline.
