Environmental issues are holding up development at the corner of Buffalo Street and Arizona Avenue in downtown Chandler.

Environmental issues are holding up development at the corner of Buffalo Street and Arizona Avenue in downtown Chandler.


Chandler officials are in talks with a New York-based developer to build a mixed commercial/residential project several stories tall on a high-profile corner viewed as a future northern "gateway" into downtown.



The land - about four acres on the east side of Arizona Avenue between Chandler Boulevard and Buffalo Street - previously had been slated to house future phases of the eye-catching mustard and crimson 123 Washington Street condominium project, completed in 2007, said Teri Killgore, Chandler's downtown redevelopment manager.

Knox Road project scheduled to begin

However, developers Benton-Robb in 2008 sold its property on the southeast corner of Chandler Boulevard and Arizona Avenue, as well as development rights to an L-shaped city-owned parcel south of Guedo's Taco Shop and an existing Jack-in-the-Box restaurant, to COR Arizona Land Company, based in Fayetteville, N.Y., she said.

The land is considered part of Chandler's downtown historic square, Killgore said.

"Anytime you have an entryway (into downtown), it's an important corner," she said.
