Plans scrapped for housing project near Roosevelt Row

Plans are off for "The Row," a controversial downtown housing and renovation project near the Roosevelt Row arts district, after the developer and city terminated their agreement.

Roosevelt Housing Associates agreed with the city Dec. 23 to scrap the development, which proposed building 56 to 75 apartment units off of Roosevelt Row and converting the historic Knipe House into a restaurant and craft brewery. The city owns the house and vacant land on Second Street between Roosevelt and Portland Streets. Under the contract, the developer had to start work by Dec. 31 or ask the city for an extension, said Christine Mackay, Phoenix Community and Economic Development Director.
