Over the past two years, amidst all the new buildings popping up, Downtown Phoenix has quietly become a national leader in promoting adaptive reuse.
On Saturday, September 26, a handful of adaptive reuse projects will be highlighted during the Grand Avenue Festival.
Downtown Phoenix will be home to the city’s inaugural Jane’s Walk on Saturday, May 2, 2009. The free walking tour — part of an international annual event commemorating the birthday of renowned urban activist Jane Jacobs, who died in 2006 — will take place between 9:00 and 11:00 am. It will start, and end, at Portland Park on First Avenue and Portland Street (next to the Roosevelt and Central light rail station).
