Developers planning to build a hotel adjacent to Downtown Tucson’s Rialto Theatre have changed gears.

A proposal to build a Marriott dual-concept hotel complex at Fifth Avenue and Broadway has been scrapped and focus shifted to potential multi-use project at the Corbett block on Sixth Avenue and Seventh Street, including a possible hotel.

Scott Stiteler, one of the developers and owner of the Corbett block, said the decision was made after months of feasibility studies at the Rialto site that showed the hotel development would not work there because of shape of the space and its size.
