Welcome to Phoenix Towers!
Phoenix Towers is a unique high-rise residential community in the heart of Phoenix's arts district, just north of downtown. Consisting of just 57 spacious residences, set back from Central Avenue within over two acres of landscaped grounds, Phoenix Towers offers the best of urban living.
Built in 1957 as a resident-owned cooperative community, Phoenix Towers is now considered an outstanding example of mid-century architecture and is listed on the Department of the Interior’s register of historic buildings. Located along the western edge of the historic Alvarado neighborhood, Phoenix Towers is immediately next door to the world renowned Heard Museum with its collection of Native American art. A few blocks south along Central Avenue are the Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix Theater, and the main branch of the library.
Phoenix Towers’ residents enjoy the convenience of an underground garage (two side-by-side spaces per apartment). The Encanto stop of the city’s new light rail transportation system is a half-block away. The light rail is ideal for rapid transit to downtown theaters, hotels, municipal services, the Arizona State University downtown campus, and major sports and concert venues. The light rail has a stop that links to shuttle transportation to Sky Harbor International Airport. By auto, the airport is about ten minutes away.
Phoenix Towers recently completed a $5,000,000 renovation program that included new dual-paned windows, replacement and upgrading of the air conditioning system, refurbishment of the swimming pool and patio, and a totally redesigned penthouse floor consisting of an enclosed community room (with floor to ceiling windows) and a covered terrace. The penthouse floor has a kitchen prep area and is ideal for private events or simply relaxing and enjoying the view. The penthouse floor offers spectacular views in all directions.
With very few exceptions, there are three basic floor plans from which to choose. On floors two through seven, the front apartments are two-bedroom, two-bath residences. On all of the floors, the back, or east-facing apartments are larger two-bedroom, two-bath units with eat-in kitchens. The front apartments on floors eight to thirteen are three-bedroom, three-bath apartments with eat-in kitchens and large balconies.
