PHOENIX (AP) — The Phoenix City Council has approved a rezoning request that will redevelop the Paradise Valley Mall in northeast Phoenix.
The council voted on the issue Wednesday.
The approved mixed-use development includes retail shops, a grocery store, restaurants, high-rise multi-family housing with a maximum 120 feet in height, office space and self-storage.
The 92-acre site will be developed in phases and will promote walkability and connectivity with pedestrian paths and common areas.
Residents also have the option of using mass transit with the existing transit facility located within the development.
Phoenix officials said the Mesquite Library is not part of the redevelopment and will remain in its location.
Construction and demolition of parts of the mall are expected to begin within the next few months.
