Some affordable housing is coming to downtown Scottsdale.

City Council voted 6-1 last week to rezone 1.7 acres at the intersection of Miller Road and 6th Avenue for a 148-unit apartment complex known as “The Miller.”

As part of the project, owner Toll Brothers agreed to dedicate eight units as “workforce housing,” which would control the rent for five years, without seeking any tax breaks for lost revenue.

“It is forward thinking,” Councilwoman Betty Janik said. “We finally have an opportunity for obtainable workforce housing. I think it’s a wonderful opportunity. Yes, it’s an experiment. I think it’s going to be a very successful experiment.”

The zoning request included increasing density from 50 units per acre on the site to 87 and raising the building height from 66 feet to 76 feet.

“It is a little more dense than I would prefer, but I think we are getting a lot for that density and I think it’s going to pay off for us,” Councilwoman Kathy Littlefield said.
