At a press conference this morning, April 1, 2009, it was announced that a project for Arizona's tallest building is being considered. Located in downtown Phoenix in the area currently occupied by a parking garage south of Jefferson between 3rd and 4th Streets, and at 120 stories tall, it will dwarf the 40-story Chase Tower (which old-timers in the area will remember as the Valley National Bank Building). Although most of the tenants will be businesses, the east side of the tower between the 6th floor and the 24th Floor will be comprised of premium priced condos, on the assumption that when the roof is open at Chase Field, residents will be able to see the Arizona Diamondbacks games from their perched positions on the balconies.
