The city of Phoenix is looking to move forward with hearing proposals for the potential redevelopment or sale of the Phoenix Convention Center’s South Building.
The Phoenix City Council will get a briefing from staff on Wednesday on an engagement process to solicit ideas and plans for the South Building in downtown Phoenix.
The council could authorize staff to move forward with outreach on the future of the South Building.
The 286,000-square-foot South Building opened in 1985 and is the oldest part of the Phoenix Convention Center complex.
It sits on a 9.27-acre site bounded by Washington and Jefferson streets and Third and Fifth streets.
It is a prime downtown property near Chase Field, Talking Stick Resort Arena. The city could look to expand or modernize the South Building of the convention center or team renovations with a private development partner. The South Building was once considered for a new downtown arena. The Phoenix Suns and city are starting a modernization of Talking Stick Resort Arena.
