The All Saints Catholic Newman Center has announced plans to construct a dorm tower on its site in downtown Tempe.

The tower near Arizona State University will cost up to $50 million.

It’s unclear just how tall the tower will rise on the site, which is less than an acre.

Planners for Tempe said the center’s officials have discussed a roughly 20-story structure.

On Sunday, the center’s leaders told parishioners they had decided to build a tower that will house about 500 students.

Developer Domus Communities of Kansas City will pay to build and maintain the tower.

The project will include offices and a chapel.

The church hopes the near-campus living will bring its ministry to more students.

Church officials did not return phone calls about the project, but the Web site www.preparehimroom.org has details about the project.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.
