A 15-year-old height restriction blocking the proposed Museum Square development has shed light on how the City of Scottsdale’s development priorities have shifted over the past two decades.

The restriction was connected to a now-defunct 2002 redevelopment agreement between the city and a Houston-based developer and limits heights of structures to 60 feet on some city-owned land in the area northeast of Goldwater Boulevard and Second Street.

Much of that land is currently slated to become Museum Square, a mixed-use development by ARC Scottsdale Holdings.
