LV Collective to Build 289-Unit Tempe Rental Community
LV Collective has been given the green light to demolish a one-time Super 8 motel near Rural Road and Apache Boulevard and construct a 15-story apartment complex and coffee shop in its place. LV Collective is proposing to build 289-units on the spot that currently serves as a transitional shelter for the homeless. Before granting approval for the project, the city found alternative housing for those housed at the Super 8.
The proposal calls for a mix of studios, one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom units, with about 3,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor. The site is about 1.35 acres.
LV Collective plans to demolish the Super 8 motel before the end of March. The ground-floor restaurant space will be taken by a coffee shop called Daydreamer, which will have espresso drinks, coffee, tea and pastries.
