Team behind $300 million project asks city for increased height restrictions

A new mixed-use development with ties to some of the Valley business community’s biggest names faced vocal opposition Tuesday at its first public airing.
The public meeting regarding the 44|Camelback project, which is being proposed for the northwest corner of 44th Street and Camelback Road in Phoenix, drew numerous residents who told members of the Camelback East Village Planning Committee the project is too tall and would block the neighborhood’s view of Camelback Mountain.
The $300 million project is being master developed by Phoenix-based Red Development, which brought on popular restaurateur Sam Fox to develop the proposed hotel. The Phoenix Suns, the Valley’s National Basketball Association team, is designing a $25 million to $50 million practice facility on the property as well.
