Two projects approved by the Tempe Development Review Board this week will, if built, add 943 apartments to the city’s housing stock.
For the larger of the two projects – Emerald Multifamily – Davis Development requested an amended planned area development overlay; a use permit for residential and a development plan review to create a new 591-unit, five-story multifamily community on 16.8 acres at the SWC of Priest and Commerce drives.
The site is currently zoned Regional Commercial Center and has a mixed-use land use designation. The current request deals with the northern section of the parcel, while the southern portion will remain commercial under the existing Emerald Center PAD.
