The tour is designed for participants to get a true feel for urban living and each venue is conveniently located within walking distance of the light rail. Bike racks will be available at each location and pedal cabs will be on-hand for easy, urban transportation.
“Midtown Phoenix is home to a bustling business district, world-class museums and culture, fine restaurants, lush parks and a diverse mix of housing options,” said Susan Thompson, president of the Midtown Museum District Neighborhood Association. “The Urban Living Tour will feature amazing homes and really highlight why Midtown is the prime Valley destination to combine live, work and play.”
Executive Towers was the tallest building in Phoenix at the time of its construction in the early 1960s. The 22-story Al Beadle-designed high rise is truly one of a kind.
One Lexington is a collection of loft-style condominiums with modern concrete-and-steel construction. Once the Century Bank office building, it is an excellent example of adaptive reuse.
Regency House is a 22-story luxury condominium building and was one of the first high-rise residential buildings constructed in Phoenix. Its cantilevered balconies provide spectacular views.
Tapestry on Central is a three-building, seven-story, mid-rise offering two-story city homes, executive penthouses and expansive flats.
Phoenix Towers was the first high-rise residential building in Arizona. Designed by Ralph C. Harris in the Modern style and constructed by Del Webb in 1957, Phoenix Towers was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.
Chateau on Central offers a truly metropolitan vertical-living experience in the heart of Phoenix with its beautiful five-story brownstones. The Rosson House located in Historic Heritage Square inspired its architecture.
Villa del Coronado is one of the most sought after and unique co-op communities in Phoenix. Built in 1958, this wonderful example of Mid-Century Modern design was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.
Artisan Lofts on Central was designed to feel like a renovated warehouse, with units that feature open floor plans and exposed ductwork and beams. The development was awarded Best in American Living Award (BALA) by the National Association of Home Builders in 2005.
