A Phoenix City Council subcommittee will consider a proposed development agreement and $800,000 outlay for infrastructure improvements for a proposed sports arena and hotel development.
Legacy Sports Arena LLC wants to build 171,000 square-foot sports arena and an 88-room new hotel on 20-acres at Bronco Butte Trail and the North Valley Parkway.
The land is vacant. The arena would seat 1,500 fans and host amateur sports. Plans call for two regulation ice rinks, multiple volleyball and basketball courts as well as restaurants and shops.
The development needs infrastructure improvements from the city including extending Bronco Butte Trail through the property.
The development deal calls for the city of Phoenix to reimburse Legacy Sports Arena as much as $800,000 over 10 years for infrastructure improvements.
Arizona Corporation Commission records list Robert Eaton Jr as the corporate manager of Legacy Sports. The Phoenix City Council’s Workforce and Economic Development Subcommittee will look at the development plans and potential infrastructure outlays at its meeting today
