Description

The Downtown Development Corporation in Tucson investigated the development potential of a 20-acre site in the Rio Nuevo South Redevelopment Project adjacent to downtown Tucson. The Harrison Price Company (HPC) was engaged to study the economic potential of the site, concentrating on the feasibility of an inner-city attraction. The research effort focused on an evaluation of alternative land uses for the site including a themed or other attraction, specialty retail, museum, hotel, and commercial office space. This report has the following sections: introduction, summary and conclusions, demographic characteristics of the Tucson region, survey and comparative regional demographic analyses of "Old Towns" in the West, development recommendations, phasing schedule, and an evaluation of the project with a stabilized year proforma financial statement and capital cost estimates.
