Sheraton, 50th Street projects continue advance
It looks like Ahwatukee Foothills residents will get plenty of fancy new neighbors. The city and county look poised to approve plans by developers to rehabilitate the Four Points by Sheraton Phoenix Hotel just off I-10 and Elliot Road into apartments and add more, and to raze an underutilized office complex on 50th Street north of Chandler Boulevard. These two projects should add 600 units of housing to this area of Phoenix, which hasn’t had a new apartment complex since 2014. And since 1999, only two buildings totaling 510 units have gone up there.
