HURST ARCHITECT HOMES RISING IN EVERY PART OF THIS CITY Building Operations Con tinue in Phoenix With out Any Apparent Abate ment Some New Struc tures Planned for Future 129 N. Central. Tel. 1378 Building progress in Phoenix gees right along without abatement, partic ularly in the residential districts where many handsome structures are either in the course of construction or are planned for the immediate future. A glance at the long list of building per mits issued the past week by Building Inspector Howard B. Claflin will indi cate that despite the statement of that official that it was an unusually quiet week, there is still much doing in this line. But notwithstanding the activity in the construction of smaller buildings, there are persistent rumors of greater things to come in the near future. It is said, in this connection, that the fi nancing of a project to give to Phoenix a handsome six-story, steel construc tion hotel not far from the heart of the city, has progressed to the point where it is practically certain that the build ing will become a reality in the not distant future. Work upon the new building of Selim Ackel, at Central Avenue and Jefferson Street has progressed to the second story. It is now understood that Mr. Ackel has architects at work preparing plans to extend the structure two or three stories above the three originally planned.
