Lois Weiss climbs the stairs to her fourth floor office in downtown Phoenix. Rest assured, there's an elevator in the building, but she's into staying fit — she has been her whole life, so much so, that it was her first real career before ever entering law enforcement. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>"Going into college, I needed to find a way to pay for things," Lt. Weiss explained. "As I was pursuing my bachelor's at the University of Illinois [at] Chicago — was pursuing that for criminal justice, I majored in that, I minored in political science. So during that time, personal training was a monetary benefit."</div> <div> <br> </div> <div>Lt. Weiss worked four years as a personal trainer at a health club in a suburb of Chicago. Personal training led her to the world of bodybuilding, and she eventually found herself in competitions. She said she walked away with a handful of trophies, and some invaluable life lessons, too. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div> <div>"It taught you intestinal fortitude," Lt. Weiss said. "It taught you emotional equity, in any mission. It taught self preservation, self regulation, it also taught me how to work seamlessly with other people because it really put in the forefront of my mind, I can't go this alone."</div> <div></div> </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>Ultimately though, she said she did not see herself in personal training forever, and after graduating college, she returned to an interest she had as a little girl. <br></div> <div> <br> </div> <div>"I wanted to go into law enforcement," Lt. Weiss said. "I just knew I did. Personal training wasn't going to ever allow me the conduit, or the way, to hold people accountable for horrible things that they did."</div> <div> <br> </div> <div>So, in her early 20s, she moved out west, and the rest, as they say, is history. Lt. Weiss has been with the Phoenix Police Department for 27 years. She has been in roles from financial crimes to homicide to undercover details, always keeping with her the strong mental and physical foundation from that first career. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>Now as a leader of the department's Professional Standards Bureau, she cannot stress enough the benefits of a team with a diverse employment background like her own. </div> <div>  <br></div> <div>"I believe that diversity galvanizes the department," Lt. Weiss explained. "And this is going to set us up for longevity in this organization that I truly believe is the best organization in the country."</div> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolicePolice
Phoenix Readies 12 Acres, Minutes from Downtown, for Developer Interesthttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/ced/1791Community and Economic Development3/5/2021 8:15:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1791/NEWSROOM_CED_210005.jpgPhoenix Readies 12 Acres, Minutes from Downtown, for Developer Interest<div class="ExternalClassB78C271D252341BB94DE265CCCEB795C"><html> <p>The city of Phoenix is seeking ideas for developing 12 acres of prime, undeveloped land at the southwest corner of 24th Street and Broadway Road. Phoenix Community and Economic Development is issuing a Request for Information on January 29 to collect site development ideas.</p> <p style="text-align:center;">By Eric Jay Toll for PHXNewsroom</p> <p>At the crossroads of two major arterial streets, the 24th Street and Broadway Road site is across the street from the Phoenix Neighborhood Resource Center and a police substation. </p> <p>“We’re looking for creative concepts that work for this site and the community,” said Christine Mackay, director, Community and Economic Development. “We hope to attract ideas from developers interested in large, flat, undeveloped parcels close to Downtown Phoenix and on two major transit routes.”</p> <p>The site consists of two parcels. The Broadway Road frontage zoned C-2, and the southern portion of the site zoned R1-6. The property is within the <a href="/pddsite/Documents/PZ/pdd_pz_pdf_00305.pdf" target="_blank">Four Corners Overlay District</a> and is a part of <a href="/nsdsite/Documents/105605.pdf" target="_blank">Target Area B Redevelopment Area</a>. </p> <p>“Our current thought is that the desired project is a mixed-use development with a combination of workforce and affordable housing, with retail uses or commercial development in support of the surrounding community,” said Mackay. “Of special interest is projects that also address the current ‘food desert’ in this area.”<br></p> <p> <img style="margin:5px;width:496px;" src="/econdevsite/MediaAssets/NewsRelatedImages/PHXNewsroom/24-BROADWAY-20210304-Aerial-Map.jpg" /> <br> </p> <p>The RFI outcome will tell the city and neighborhood which development options are economically feasible and meet the goals of activating the property. The RFI responses will help determine if the City issues a formal Request for Proposals at a later date.<br></p> <p>“A creative idea is going to be the catalyst to get this property on the market,” said Mackay. “We have listened to the neighborhood and are now trying to connect their vision with  developer concepts.”</p> <p>In addition to development ideas, Phoenix wants to know what type of assistance, if any, developers believe is necessary for a successful project. Timeline projections are part of the RFI and the city wants to see how a healthy development of this site benefits the surrounding neighborhood.</p> <p>About one mile from Interstate 10, the 24th Street and Broadway Road site is under 10 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and Downtown Phoenix. The property is situated in an actively developing area:</p> <p>• Agri-Food Innovation Center on the former Del Rio Landfill site is near 7th and Elwood streets about two miles to the west. The $200 million capital investment will generate $848 million in annual economic output and create more than 1,400 in direct and indirect jobs.</p> <p>• Around 200 single-family home permits and more than 100 certificates-of-occupancy were issued within a three-mile radius of the site in 2020.</p> <p>• Rio Reimagined, the John McCain Legacy Project, will revitalize Rio Salado and the surrounding region starting about one mile from the site. A federal grant kicked off work on a target area of the river.</p> <p>• The under-construction South Central light rail route puts a station under 2.5 miles from the offered property, connecting bus service running to-and-from the station on Broadway Road.</p> <p>• South Mountain Communication College is just two miles from the site. The college is known for its engineering, communications and mobile application development training. SMCC also provides customized training programs in transportation, logistics and construction trades.</p> <p>• South Mountain Park and Preserve is the second largest municipal park in the world. At over 16,000 acres, the park’s terrain provides innumerable active, developed and backcountry recreation opportunities just three miles from the site. Over 50 miles of trails crisscross the park. Trip Advisor awarded South Mountain a 2020 Traveler’s Choice Award.</p> <p>The RFI goes to the market on March 5, and the deadline for responses is April 15, 2021. Community and Economic Development is conducting an informational webinar at 9:00 a.m. on March 18. All submittal requirements, dates and deadlines are in the RFI.

​Ex-CA, Now PHX Startup, Kalos Therapeutics, Gets €55M Foreign-Direct Investmenthttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/ced/1788Community and Economic Development3/4/2021 3:15:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1788/NEWSROOM_CED_210004.jpghttps://youtu.be/1ursO6wLXGY​Ex-CA, Now PHX Startup, Kalos Therapeutics, Gets €55M Foreign-Direct Investment<div class="ExternalClass503AE5BF7253407FBE87377CE8D56AB3"><html> <p>A Phoenix bioscience company landed €55M in a three-year foreign-direct investment deal with a Luxembourg-based venture company. Kalos Therapeutics, a next-generation cancer treatment sciences company, moved to Phoenix from San Diego several years ago.</p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <em>By Eric Jay Toll for PHXNewsroom with additional content from Kalos Therapeutics</em> <br> </p> <p>The finding catalyzes Kalos' initial public offering on the Frankfurt, Germany, stock exchange.</p> <p> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">Since headquartering in Phoenix, Kalos was featured on the BIO International StartUp Stadium, where it presented to global bio- and life-science investment groups. The investment by GEM Global Yield LLC SCS, a private alternative investment group, funds Kalos Therapeutics, Inc. over a 36-month term following the public listing of common stock. </span> </p> <p>Kalos Therapeutics plans to use the funds to advance its three preclinical programs into clinical development and broaden the pipeline based on its proprietary, small peptide technology.<br></p> <p>"Kalos is positioned to move the first three drug candidates forward into clinical development, based on the agreement with GEM," announced George Colberg, Chief Executive Officer of Kalos Therapeutics. <br></p> <p>Kalos Therapeutics controls the timing and a maximum number of drawdowns under this facility and has no minimum drawdown obligation. Concurrent with a public listing of Kalos Therapeutics' shares, Kalos  Therapeutics will issue warrants to GEM to purchase up to 9.9% of the company's common stock. <br></p> <p>Kalos Therapeutics anticipates a proof-of-concept study to be completed in canines and to leverage that data to advance the pancreatic cancer indication.  <br></p> <p>This approach will allow for revenue in the next 24-36 months from out-licensing agreements to allow the development of a canine cancer product in a virulent canine cancer with outcomes similar to human pancreatic cancer. This project's success will also provide ongoing revenue to Kalos Therapeutics in the form of royalties. <br></p> <p>Kalos Therapeutics will, in parallel, advance its pancreatic cancer candidate, KTH-222, for which it has already secured an Orphan Drug designation, into clinical development and will explore its utility in treating  Metastatic disease. Kalos will also seek to ensure an FDA-designated Breakthrough Therapy designation for the use of KTH-222 in other rare and orphan cancers.  <br></p> <p>Kalos further plans to develop therapeutics for use against COVID-19. Early data show its peptides' ability to block the virus's binding to its receptor on human cells. This activity can inhibit infectivity or reduce the severity of symptoms in those who are infected. Also, this mechanism shows promise to be more effective than vaccines when treating immunocompromised patients and could be more resistant to being circumvented by virus mutations. <br></p> <p>"We are very excited to advance this unique technology, which has shown much promise in basic research studies, into clinical development," stated Dr. Michael R.
