Washington Street in Downtown Phoenix. Starting at $165,000 and ranging from 571 to 869 square feet, the contemporary new residences are designed to offer affordable housing in a thriving downtown area that is bustling with young professionals, downsizers and renters looking to own a home. Construction on Capitol Lofts is expected to begin early next year and will be move in ready by summer 2018.
“Our goal is to deliver high quality affordable lofts to Downtown Phoenix,” said Saul Siegel, developer for Capitol Lofts. “We wanted to bring an affordable housing option that is accessible to people at all income levels,” he said.
