The $2.1 billion development is supposed to be located near Rio Salado Parkway and Priest Drive. The deal included hotels. apartments, retail businesses, a music venue, and a hockey arena. The vote split remains 56-44 as the first ballot dropped earlier. The key reasons for a potential rejection lie with the relentless campaigning by Tempe 1st. They argued that the deal is opening up more taxes for Tempe citizens. They also termed that the deal is lucrative only for Alex Meruelo who the Tempe 1st never failed to call a non-native.
