An Afternoon Adventure in Midtown Living

The Midtown Museum District Neighborhood Association is proud to announce the Second Annual Midtown Urban Living Tour. Planned for November 1st from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm, the Tour will feature some of Midtown’s finest residential buildings. Last year’s inaugural Tour attracted almost 600 visitors in a 4- hour period and was received with an overwhelmingly positive response. This year the Tour adds two new buildings and an additional hour of time to visit them.

The Midtown Urban Living Tour will showcase homes in seven celebrated Midtown communities. Tour goers will have the rare opportunity to explore selected homes in: Artisan Lofts on Central, Villa del Coronado, Regency House, Phoenix Towers, Tapestry on Central, One Lexington, Executive Towers and Chateau on Central.

Phoenix Towers

In true urban fashion, we encourage tour goers to enjoy the convenience of riding the Light Rail for travel between communities. Pedal cabs and a trolley service will also be available and there will be bike racks at each property for cyclists. Before or after exploring Midtown living options, tour goers may stop for a bite at one of the many excellent restaurants found in Midtown, some of which will be offering special deals for tour goers showing evidence of ticket purchase.

As significant as it is in the development of Phoenix, Midtown gets less attention in the history books, perhaps because it represents an “in between” phase between the city’s original settlement and the tremendous outward growth that followed. Today, this sector of Downtown is home to a bustling business district, world-class museums and culture, fine restaurants, lush parks and a diverse mix of housing options. We invite you to see for yourself why Midtown is at the crossroads of “live, work and play” in Phoenix.
