Downtown Phoenix is Rising and Diverse housing options abound

Downtown Phoenix housing

Housing options abound in downtown Phoenix and residents are enjoying an ever-changing urban lifesty

Have you been to downtown Phoenix lately? There is an incredible amount of activity around the light rail. Hot new restaurants and clubs seem to be coming in every month; new business and corporate headquarters are filling up high-rise buildings; supermarkets are sprouting up to serve the influx of people wanting to be in the center of the action. Phoenix is rising and diverse downtown Phoenix housing options abound.

I first moved to Phoenix from New York in the early 80’s. While I loved the natural beauty of the valley, I was disappointed that there was nothing remotely resembling the urban energy and lifestyle of New York City. The streets of “downtown” were deserted after 6pm. Few options for interesting dining existed outside of Durant’s – a Phoenix institution since 1955 that still attracts the business set and politicos straight out of an episode of Mad Men! Public transportation other than buses was not even being discussed. There was not enough retail, entertainment or transportation options to make downtown Phoenix a significant destination for the rest of the valley. And the downtown Phoenix housing market was, well, less than impressive. Downtown Phoenix is rising and the housing market is on FIRE!

Downtown Phoenix is rising as a walkable city with light rail, restaurants and entertainment venues that rival any major city in the US.  Get up to the rooftop of any high rise building and you will be amazed at the housing options for all of those wanting to take advantage of an energetic urban atmosphere. Want a single family home? Check out the historic neighborhoods such as Willow, Encanto, Coronado, or Roosevelt. Many of the homes have been restored to their original charm and beauty while updated with modern conveniences. Perhaps you’re a renter attending the downtown campus of ASU. High rise apartment buildings are shooting up like dandelions. And they are NIIIICE! Modern, light, bright units appointed with granite and glass kitchens, walk-in, beautifully tiled showers, wood-look tile flooring, broad balconies overlooking the city. And I’ve seen more dogs in some of these buildings than at the local animal shelter that I frequent all too often. This is a DOG CITY!

Want an urban loft or apartment feel, but don’t want to rent? Condominiums have cropped up along the light rail providing a dynamic lifestyle with pools, fitness centers, retail and pharmacies on site. Garage parking is provided, but you won’t need a car much of the time. Walk to any one of several restaurants or stores in the area. Or take the light rail to The Arizona Center to catch a movie. The Orpheum Theater is nearby, as are several sports arena’s and the Phoenix Civic Center. It’s an entertainment mecca.
