Plans continue to advance for the construction of a large high-rise set to go up in downtown Tucson that will include apartment, office, and retail space.
The project is slated for construction at a currently vacant site at 75 E. Broadway Boulevard and is being developed Tucson Group Holdings.
As planned, the structure will have nearly 14,000 square feet of retail space. Part of that space will be taken up by a CVS outlet, which will comprise 9,800 square feet.
Just under 18,000 square feet of flex space will be built into the building’s second floor, with three floors devoted to offices.
The remaining upper levels of the floor will see apartment spaces of varying sizes.
Also included in the project, which is being called 75 Broadway: a pedestrian alley slicing through the middle of the block with retail, restaurant, and bar space.
Plans for the big project have already been submitted to the City of Tucson.
The site was formerly the home of the 3-story Roskruge Hotel, which was built in 1924, but demolished just over six decades later in 1984.
Work could begin on the new mixed-use sometime next year, with a general completion date of 2024.
