How We Dug In

In the heart of downtown Tucson was a relatively small surface parking lot filled historically with visitors to the iconic Chase Bank building, built in 1929 and dubbed “Tucson’s first skyscraper”. With the explosion of activity downtown, a need for additional real estate square footage became essential to the continued success of the downtown resurgence. With support from the City of Tucson both in favorable overlay criteria and financial incentives, 1 East Broadway was a dream of its ownership group brought to life. CYPRESS assisted in coordination with the various utility owners and City of Tucson Department of Transportation to ensure this new mid-rise building in downtown Tucson could be made possible logistically. During construction CYPRESS was heavily involved in various site related adjustments that became necessary, as expected, when disturbing the surface of one of Tucson’s oldest intersections.
