Feds might retake prime Phoenix parcel

The owner of a 15-acre parcel at one of Phoenix’s most-trafficked intersections has stopped making payments on the property, leaving its fate up in the air.

The federal government could regain ownership of the parcel — on the northeastern corner of Central Avenue and Indian School Road — and that concerns some city officials.
