This isn’t your parents’ downtown Phoenix anymore. Until the 1950s, residential neighborhoods flanked the downtown core where citizens flocked for work, shopping, dining, civic and other services. However, by the end of the century downtown lacked activity outside the work hours of 9 to 5. Today, Phoenix is experiencing growth, particularly in dense multi-family projects that are impacting the skyline and contributing to the active pedestrian oriented 24 -hour city. Shepley Bulfinch is honored to have a major part in the evolution of a vibrant downtown.
In the last four years, Shepley Bulfinch has broken ground on five major high-rises in downtown Phoenix that have created an entirely new residential district in the core of the city. Three of these projects include:
- The Link, a 30-story residential tower that is the second tallest residential building in Arizona
- 700 North 4th street, a 26-story high building neighboring to the east of The Link
- 811 N. 3rd St, a 24 story multi-family mixed use project that recently broke ground
Currently under construction, the 811 N. 3rd St high-rise residential tower is the newest of Shepley’s Phoenix developments. It overlaps the southern edge of the Roosevelt Row Artists District and provides a connection to the central business district only blocks away. The infill development stitches together the urban fabric by activating vacant land and providing continuity along the pedestrian-level streetscape. Adding local boutique café and social art space between the adjacent existing businesses and buildings, the tower augments the already bustling and vibrant arts community.
