News > More New Condos Planned for Downtown and Midtown Phoenix

published on 2015-12-10

If it seems like there’s more new construction action going on in midtown and downtown Phoenix, it’s because several new condo projects are finally kicking into high gear. After several years of doldrums following the 2008 economic collapse, the demand for urban housing and a lifestyle where trips to work, entertainment and cultural opportunities don’t require the need for a car has finally reached a point where the appearance of new steel and cement provides hope for those seeking modern urban dwellings.

En Hance Park, located across the street from the city’s Margaret Hance Park, is well under construction and sales are brisk. With condos starting at just $150,000, it is one of the most affordable urban options on the table. Located in the midst of the burgeoning Phoenix art district and steps from Roosevelt Row, this development will have 49 units with a move-in date set for July of 2016. Floor plans range from 400 to 1,100 square feet. En Hance Park offers flats, lofts and even two-bedroom spaces that can be used as live/work units. The dwellings on the ground floor have private courtyards with large glass garage doors that allow nature inside. Sleek, contemporary styling creates a modern feeling of minimalism inside the units, while a modern pool and sun deck are perfect for relaxing with neighbors.


Located a little farther north on the light rail line, Edison Midtown offers seven different floor plans ranging from a 808 square-foot one bedroom model to a spacious 1,397 square-foot unit that has two bedrooms and a den. Construction is scheduled to start this month, with a move-in date set for November 2016. Every unit will have European cabinetry and stainless appliances in the kitchen, but you have your choice of three different interior schemes. Urban Glow utilizes plenty of light and calm colors around walnut floors and taupe tile. The Industrial Revival scheme has more earth tones with white quartz counters and an intelligent use of wood accents with modern lines. Platinum is the standard on all seventh floor homes and features Bosch appliances, upgraded fixtures and marble bathrooms. The Platinum look is also available as an option on lower units. As you might expect with a new development, Edison Midtown will have laser fast Wi-Fi and the ability to enable home automation. A large fitness center, outdoor yoga facility and dedicated lap lane in the pool all contribute to the health of this community’s residents.

Breaking ground last April, Portland on the Park is already one-third sold as it nears a move-in date of October, 2016. Habitat Metro, the same development company that built Portland Place in 2007, is the brainchild behind this development of 149 units that range from mid-level residences starting at 745 square feet and lofts to spacious penthouse units totaling almost 2,508 square feet. There are 21 different floor plans that deliver a unique living experience with varying ceiling heights and standard finishes that include designer wood cabinets, stainless appliances and in-home laundry units. Technology packages allow you to control your lighting, audio and security via a mobile phone. Keep your energy costs as low as possible by remotely adjusting your temperature as well as your window shades. Located south of Hance Park on the west side of Central, the condos and lofts at Portland on the Park are ideally situated to let residents enjoy all entertainment and nightlife available in midtown Phoenix.  This community has continued to be a favorite with our clients.

By creating new opportunities along the light rail line for urban living, developers are contributing to the rebirth of central Phoenix as an exciting place to live, work and play.  Let us know if you have interest in more information on these communities, or to determine which one is right for you.  We can act as your buyer's agent for this purchase at no extra cost to you.
