Speedway Campbell Gateway Project
- Real Estate Developers
The Speedway Campbell Gateway is a mixed-use residential, hospitality and professional office complex, together with ground-level restaurants, grocery, upscale retail, and neighborhood goods and services. It will replace the existing Palm Shadows Apartments complex at the northwest corner of Speedway and Campbell. For Tucson to grow sustainably, we must provide opportunities for people to live, work, have access to retail and shopping opportunities and open space amenities, all within walking and transit distances to each other. This project’s site provides the opportunity to create and enhance this sustainable model and build the density and height in an area that is not directly adjacent to single-family residential homes. This property is uniquely situated as it is surrounded by University of Arizona education and medical buildings, two major arterial roadways and commercial development on the opposite sides of the major roadways. In addition, the developer, architect and consultants associated with the project are all local and have personal passion for this project and our community’s future. Because this is our home, we have the best interests of Tucson at heart and believe that this type of development (building up, rather than out) will make Tucson’s growth sustainable, without more sprawl and destruction of desert habitat. This project will be a high-quality and attractive complex that will be a local “destination,” with green spaces and public places to serve neighbors and the entire community.
The 2.49-acre site is located in the northwest quadrant of the Speedway Boulevard/Campbell Avenue intersection and fronts upon Helen Street to the north.
