Hotel Arizona Remodel

July 16, 2019

Former rendering of the front entrance driveway of the Hotel Arizona that was proposed in 2017 (Rendering/HSL Properties).

 

Proposed:

Pueblo Partners LLC (HSL Properties) is proposing an estimated $45 million renovation to the former Hotel Arizona (181 W. Broadway Blvd.) which opened in 1973 and closed in 2012. When reopened, the hotel is reported to be Hyatt Regency with around 296 rooms and close to 20,000 sqft of convention and meeting space. The developer is asking for financial support from the city in the form of a GPLET tax incentive for eight years among others. An Arizona Daily Star article has details on the other incentives the developer is asking for.

Tucson City Council has approved staff to move forward with an economic analysis by a third party before approving a GPLET and other incentives. The adjacent Hotel Arizona parking garage was demolished in January to make way for future development.
