A section of Phoenix that is populated with modern office and commercial space may see the construction of two new office structures with a combined footprint of 540,000 square feet.
The Scottsdale-based Kierland Sky LLC wants to replace an existing structure on the just under 7-acre site at the intersection of N. Kierland Boulevard and E. Marilyn Road with two buildings that will also house some retail and restaurant space.
According to city documents, both new buildings will be six stories in height and separated by open space featuring “raised planters, with desert landscaping, shade trees, and outdoor furniture.”
Those same documents also state that the building materials for the two structures will partially comprise natural stone, metal panels with a natural patina finish, and metal shading elements.
Before any work on the redevelopment can begin, the project must first win the approval of the both the Phoenix Planning Commission and City Council.
