A change in zoning is coming to a 0.28-acre lot in Old Town Scottsdale, making way for six, three-story townhome complexes called Fleetwood 6.
Scottsdale City Council approved on consent:
The change in zoning from central business district, downtown overlay (C-2 DO) to downtown/downtown multiple use type 2, planned block development, downtown overlay (D/DMU-2, PBD DO) for the site at 6900 and 6902 E. First St.
City staff say under the previous zoning, up to 35% of the first floor can be residential but the new standards allow for the entire first floor to be residential.
Two, single-story homes, which were converted to office, sit upon the site. The proposal would also allow for the six units to be developed on fee-title lots rather than condominiums. Plans call for two, one-bedroom units and four two-bedroom units.
