The Scottsdale Development Review Board approved the site plan for a mixed-use development that contains a 70-foot-tall building, 7,000 square feet of commercial space and 40 condominiums near the intersection of N. 70th Street and N. Goldwater Boulevard Thursday.

The board voted 6-1 to approve the site plan for the project known as the Goldwater despite concerns Mayor David Ortega raised about it.

Ortega does not sit on the board but attended part of the meeting to voice his concerns. In particular, he did not like the fact that the facility does not have over-hangs to provide shade to the sidewalks.

“I’m saying covered walkways is just the way we do it … That’s one of the basic things we’ve been working on for the last 40 years,” Ortega said.
