Two proposals for development in Tucson’s resurgent urban core are on the City Council agenda for Tuesday.

The first is council approval of a predevelopment plan for the Ronstadt Transit Center by Tucson’s Peach Properties. The $67 million project will include up to 400 apartments, parking, retail and public-transit space. Completion is expected in phases stretched over the next four years.

The second is a proposed $7.2 million sale of city land west of downtown in the Mercado area to the Rio Nuevo district for Caterpillar Inc.’s division headquarters. A report with the City Council agenda said the sale price will be decided from the $13.3 million the city owes Rio Nuevo for another downtown project.

The council will meet at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.
