The Phoenix City Council has given the go ahead to two major new residential developments. One project is a 63 unit town home project to be built at 44th Street and Palm Lane, and the other project is to build 292 apartments near downtown Phoenix. The council approved both projects at it’s Wednesday meeting. Originally the 44th Street parcel was slated to be a QuikTrip service station, but the plans were turned down by city voters.

City voters shot down the QT station in a 2011 ballot measure spurred by major neighborhood opposition to the plans. Many of the same neighbors also oppose the town home development due to traffic and pedestrian safety issues.

One resident who lives near the 44th Street property and owns a locksmith business, said he was frustrated with the city approvals of the development.

The apartment project, or Epoch Apartments will be built on land previously slated downtown for the Blue on 12th Street project.
The Florida developer who is going to build the apartments acquired two parcels of land for its multifamily development earlier this year.
