Johnny Gibson’s Downtown Market is finishing up construction, with a goal of opening in March.


Tucson’s downtown also has two new hotels in the works. One is an AC Hotel Marriott, to be located on Fifth Avenue between Broadway and Congress. This seven-story hotel includes plans for three restaurants, retail space, and a parking garage.
