In June 2019, Governor Dunleavy’s staff listed the Telephone Hill property as potentially excess to the SOA’s needs and potentially available for transfer from SOA to foster economic redevelopment. CBJ worked with the Dunleavy Administration and the Alaska Legislature, resulting in the authorization to transfer the property to CBJ during the 2022 Legislative session. Upon transfer of the land, CBJ began accepting proposals for the Telephone Hill Land Redevelopment Study from qualified consultants in order to study potential redevelopment options for the site and their future impact to Downtown Juneau.
