Hotel developer, Tharaldson Hospitality Development recently submitted plans to the City of Tempe for a new hotel to be located on 2.8 acres at 93 S. Rockford Drive, part of the Heavy Industrial District and the 2100 Rio Salado mixed-use development.
Tharaldson has requested a use permit to allow a hotel in that district, a development plan review that includes a site plan, landscape plan and building elevations and an amended Planned Area Development to modify the site plan from retail and restaurant to hotel use. The project was heard at Tempe’s Development Review Commission meeting on January 14th.
The hotel will be a Staybridge Suites and is part of the 2100 Rio Salado mixed-use development, a 24-acre project consisting of hotels, several commercial buildings with retail, restaurant and bar uses, offices and more. The hotel will be located on Lot 3 of the development.
