Scottsdale’s new, upscale retail center known informally as “Kierland Uncommon” now has a proposed site plan and an official name: Scottsdale Crossing. “Scottsdale Crossing will create an upscale, mixed-use project that will reflect the changes in the marketplace and relate to the surrounding context,” the developers said in an application.

The project at 15101 N. Scottsdale Road would be built across the street from Westcor’s Kierland Commons.It would feature 1.2 million square feet of office, retail and residential space, including a 38,000-square-foot movie theater and 170,000-square-foot boutique hotel.

The project would include a large central park that would feature public art and activities, developers said.“The central park will become a great public space for the community and create a unique district within the city of Scottsdale that will become nationally and internationally renowned,” they said.

Last year, the Scottsdale City Council approved zoning for the 28-acre site, currently home to the Dial Research Facility. Dial plans to move its operation to the nearby One Scottsdale development, northeast of Loop 101 and Scottsdale Road , in fall 2008. Scottsdale Crossing’s first phase would be built while the Dial building is still in use, the developers said.The Scottsdale Crossing site plan submitted last week will undergo a 30-day review by Scottsdale staff, said Robin Meinhart, a city spokeswoman.

The proposal then will be subject to a vote by Scottsdale’s Development Review Board.
