Downtown Tucson is preparing for a face-lift.

Last month, the Tucson City Council signed off on construction of a 13-story tower on 4th Avenue, and just Friday night, the council approved a $60 million deal to redevelop the downtown Ronstadt Transit Center, a project that is expected to reshape the landscape with four new high-rises.

So what does the future hold for the city?

Joe Ferguson is a reporter with the Arizona Daily Star, and he’s been covering the planned redevelopment. He joined The Show to talk about the city's new skyline.
