FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A building boom is bringing new homes, hotels and shopping centers to Flagstaff and the surrounding area.

The number of residential and hotel units in the region could grow by nearly 6,000 if all approved projects are built, The Arizona Daily Sun (http://bit.ly/2ekywTe ) reported.

The Phoenix-based construction company Vintage Partners is involved in three large development projects in the northern Arizona city, including one that will involve relocating existing businesses.

The company has already started a development on the east side of Flagstaff that will include two hotels, a grocery store, restaurants, retail stores and open space. Vintage has requested a tax rebate from the city to offset the cost of road improvements associated with the project.

Vintage also has plans for a development farther west on Route 66, which it calls Timber Sky. The 1,300 single-family homes, condominiums and townhomes will be near the U.S. Naval Observatory, and Vintage has worked with the city and observatory to create stringent lighting requirements for the area. Lighting brightness and motion-activated lights will be restricted.

Other plans include the construction Marriott Residence Inn in downtown Flagstaff and additional student housing near Northern Arizona University.
