The Phoenix City Council has granted approval for The Central Park project in Midtown, featuring 1,450 residential units, retail and restaurant spaces, and office space. The development, located at Central Avenue and Indian School Road, emphasizes a central open space plaza designed to serve as a gathering point for the community. Initial plans for the site in 2019 included office towers, residential units, a hotel, and retail space. Despite facing challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, the revised vision for the 18-acre site was positively recommended by planning authorities in December 2023. Construction timelines and development costs are yet to be determined.
