Referendum derails plans for hotel, restaurant, shops
By Jeanie Hankins
A developer with plans for a hotel, restaurant and retail shops in downtown Wickenburg has ridden off into the sunset. Government and private interests involved in the plan are hoping to regroup, and the force behind the referendum which apparently drove the developer out is not commenting.
Provident Real Estate Ventures LLC notified the Town of Wickenburg on Friday, Aug. 2 that it will not move forward with a plan for a three-story hotel, upscale restaurant and retail shops. The company also withdrew from its pending purchase of Heritage Square from ARW Ventures LLC, according to ARW partner Jeff Davis.
