LIGHT RAIL DEVELOPMENT TOUR
Join us for a tour of some of the best developments along the Phoenix ligh rail, including a downtown skyscraper and future downtown supermarket, a midcentury gem being transformed into a new hotel, an urban mixed-use development, and a new cargo container project. We'll tour each property and hear how these projects emerged.
Arrive Hotel is a creative project that takes two mid-century modern historically significant buildings--one of which the Arizona Republic referred to in 1958 as "the first structure on Camelback of more than two stories"--and transform them into a two-acre campus with 79 rooms, coffee shop, popsicle stand, restaurant, pool, and rooftop bar.
Tour registration will be next door at The Newtown where the Arrive Hotel team will make a presentation about the complexities of transit-oriented development, Historic Preservation (HP designation pending), and adaptive reuse.
After the presentation, we’ll tour the Arrive Hotel construction site!
Traveling by light rail, our second tour stop will be the Muse, a mixed-use project just a block from the Phoenix Theater, Art Museum, and Opera.
This urban & walkable-driven community has seen incredible success in attracting quality dining & commercial uses. A shaded pedestrian path through the development connects Willo Historic District residents to Central Avenue and the project’s commercial amenities. Muse residents don't have to leave the complex to pick up a great cup of coffee, a gelato, or meet with friends at one of Phoenix's most authentic pizzerias. A full-service salon & florist provide great on-site amenities as well.
Block 23 & Fry's Supermarket
Our third tour stop is Block 23, the highly anticipated mixed-use project in Downtown Phoenix. This mixed-use high rise development will be home to the area’s first grocery store by Fry’s Food Stores, which has long been sought after by residents and city leaders.
Slated for completion in 2019, Block 23 will include approximately 330 apartments, 200,000 square feet of creative office space, restaurant and retail uses along with above- and below-grade parking.
Our final tour stop is The Churchill, downtown’s first marketplace made from repurposed shipping containers that brings 10 local businesses under one massive metal roof in the Roosevelt Row Arts District.
The Churchill is much more than a destination to drink, shop & dine. The 9,000 sf central courtyard is a gathering space for events.
Join us to learn how 19 shipping containers transformed a 14,000 square feet vacant parcel into a vibrant urban community space.
After the tour, let’s enjoy Happy Hour! A drink ticket and munchies are included in the tour price.
Registration will be $65 for professionals and $25 for students.
Registration is limited to 40 attendees.
