A project taking shape at Roosevelt and Seventh streets is set to bring about another substantial change to the Roosevelt Row landscape — and provide more fodder for those who decry increasing gentrification in the neighborhood.

Arizona Public Service Company is building a new substation at 950 North Seventh Street, and it will be vaguely artsy; the exterior will include metal artworks, murals, and wayfinding designs. A performance space is planned for the property as well. It will sit on the former site of a gas station, where construction is already underway behind perimeter fencing.

“We hope to have the buildings done by May of 2022,” says Kendra Lee, a government affairs, franchises and technical services liaison with APS.
