Neighbors protest proposed apartments

Example of the Walkable Urban Code/City of Phoenix

By Colleen Sparks | Arizona Republic

Some neighbors are worried a proposed apartment complex the city of Phoenix Planning Commission favors will create more congestion and parking concerns in a busy area while not meeting their desire for more retail businesses nearby.

The Phoenix Planning Commission at its Oct. 3 meeting voted to approve recommendation of a rezoning at the northwest corner of Central Avenue and Indian School Road to allow a multi-family residential use on 10.39 acres. Toll Brothers wants the property rezoned from General Commercial District, Interim Transit-Oriented Zoning Overlay District One to Walkable Urban Code, Transect 5:5 District, Transit Uptown Character Area. The Phoenix City Council will consider the request Nov. 6.

Stephen Earl, the attorney representing Toll Brothers, said many changes to the design plan for the proposed, luxury apartments had been made to appease the Encanto Village Planning Committee, which first heard the rezoning request a few months ago.
