Before construction of the new Chandler (Ariz.) City Hall, some residents
avoided downtown south of the historic core, which consisted largely of abandoned structures, deteriorating parking lots and inappropriate zoning (such as

of downtown Chandler with the goal of bringing density back to the city center
and catalyzing future development.
