Goodyear’s Civic Square at Estrella Falls project just got real.
The City Council got its first look at proposed designs presented by city staff and project partners Globe Corp., Ryan Companies US and Butler Design Group, during a Feb. 24 work session in council chambers, 14455 W. Van Buren St., Suite B101.
Mayor Georgia Lord was absent due to the passing of her husband, retired U.S. Air Force Col. Ronald Lord, over the weekend, but City Manager Julie Arendall told the council she visited Ms. Lord earlier in the day to present the designs.
Phase I of Civic Square, at the northwest corner of McDowell Road and 150th Drive, will feature a four-story, 125,000-square-foot City Hall with a two-story, 20,000-square-foot public library in addition to council chambers and city offices. The project also will feature key partner Globe Corp.’s three-story, 100,000-square-foot office building; a parking structure that can accommodate up to 1,100 vehicles; and Civic Square Park, a two-acre greenspace where the city can hold activities and special events.
