Phoenix City Council approved a $300 million mixed-use project Wednesday, but only after the team behind the development agreed to lower the height of the proposed buildings.

The 44|Camelback project is being master developed by Phoenix-based Red Development LLC and will include a hotel to be developed by Sam Fox, founder and CEO of Fox Restaurant Concepts.

The 17-acre project will be built on the northwest corner of 44th Street and Camelback Road in Phoenix.

Until Wednesday, the project called for building both a Class A office building and the hotel 75 feet tall.
