Our Opinion: Madden will be downtown boost

Downtown revitalization efforts received a major boost Monday when Madden Media agreed to buy the city-owned MacArthur Building.

The sale of the $1.7 million historic building had stalled over parking issues. But with the work of Councilwoman Nina Trasoff and Glenn Lyons, chief executive officer of the Downtown Tucson Partnership, a resolution was reached.

Madden, a Tucson-grown business, has a major national profile. It produces visitor guides, newspaper inserts and online marketing campaigns in 37 states.

Founder and CEO Kevin Madden was enthusiastic about the move, calling downtown “a place our creative work force will appreciate.”

Madden’s rehabilitation and use of a key historic property and addition of 80 people to downtown’s work force both are significant positives.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
