PHOENIX — The Phoenix Urban Projects Authority has announced a $8.4 million renovation of a former hotel and a former medical center in the city’s downtown core.
The authority’s announcement Friday came as the agency works to restore the historic Phoenix Hospital and the Phoenix Veterans Medical Center, which are both located in the former Phoenix Hospital.
The two facilities are located about two miles from downtown Phoenix.
The buildings are listed as historic, with the authority listing them as part of the National Register of Historic Places.
The agency is looking for private investors to renovate both the old Phoenix Hospital, which closed in 2015, and the former Veterans Medical Facility.
The former Phoenix Medical Center was located in downtown Phoenix’s historic Crescent Village neighborhood and was the only hospital to be built by the Phoenix Suns and the NBA Phoenix Suns.
The site is about 15 minutes from downtown, with a drive-thru and a restaurant.
The Phoenix Hospital was built in the 1950s by a company called the Phoenix Hospital Corporation.
The building was built on the site of the former Sun Palace, a former arena built in 1926.
The Sun Palace was purchased by the city of Phoenix in 2006 for $1.7 million.
It is owned by the Arizona Republic.
Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton announced plans in February to renovating the former Suns and NBA arena.
The city recently completed a $1 million renovation and will now begin construction on a $6 million, 2,200-seat football stadium.
Stanton said in February that the city would renovate the former sports arena for events and other events.
