PHOENIX (AP) - A historic downtown Phoenix building known for appearing in the movie “Psycho” will become a cluster of condos.

The Arizona Republic reports (https://bit.ly/2904XnT) that the City Council this week approved the $2.3 million sale of the Barrister Building.

Crescent Bay Development Services LLC plans to convert the six-story tower, which was once a hotel, into a complex of at least 88 condos and erect two other buildings.

The developer also plans to incorporate shops and restaurants at the site.

But the company plans to maintain the brick facade.

Built in 1915, the property has been mostly vacant since 2010.

It is often recognized for its cameo in the opening scene of Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic suspense flick.
