Arizona Center Update

The Palm Court Tower project is in addition to a $25M renovation currently underway at the 90’s-era Arizona Center. The multi-use facility was built during an earlier renaissance in downtown Phoenix that eventually fizzled out for lack of one essential ingredient: downtown residents. Come 2018 and that’s all changed.

The Arizona Center renovation, coupled with the new residential tower, signals a new chapter for a property that had become a cautionary tale.

Not only has there been an absolute explosion in terms of downtown housing in the last 6 years, but the Palm Court Tower will add 350 families who will need to look no further than the first floor of their own complex for a drink, coffee, entertainment, or a bite to eat.
