Competing proposals in Tucson

August 12, 2014

Summary: Follow the link below to see Convergence Design founding principal David Greusel in Tucson, representing a client proposal to redevelop a critical parcel near the Tucson Convention Center. Convergence Design is the coordinating architect for the Nor-Generations LLC team proposing a mixed use development on the site.

The Rio Nuevo Board of Directors took no action Tuesday on proposals by two downtown developers for competing $100 million-plus projects .

Each developer hopes to win the chance to build their projects on about 8.5 acres of Rio Nuevo district land near the Tucson Convention Center.

Although the talk lasted over three hours, the board voted 3-2 to take a few days to think about how members will individually score the proposals and to submit their results by Monday.

The board will then vote on whether to open negotiations with a winner at its next meeting.

Last month, board members ranked the proposals submitted by Allan Norville, manager of Nor-Generations, and Ron Schwabe of Peach Properties to develop the land behind the TCC along Granada Avenue, east of Interstate 10 and north of Cushing Street.
