Proposed New Building Downtown Would Be 20 Stories of Mixed Use

A developer from Kansas City, Missouri wants to build a 20-story tower on East Broadway, between Scott and Sixth avenues. The 250,000-square-foot tower would be Tucson's second-tallest building. The structure, across from Tucson Electric Power, could be as high as 300 feet.

The Rio Nuevo taxing district this week signed off on entering into formal discussions with JE Dunn Construction for the development, which could open by 2020.
