News > Urban Townhomes Keep Popping Up

published on 2016-08-17

Like desert flowers blooming after the spring rains, new townhomes in Phoenix  are springing up, especially in the urban areas. Homebuyers are demanding a lifestyle that allows for walking to restaurants and entertainment, as well as providing access to public transportation like the Phoenix Light Rail. Heading to happy hour with the gang from work and then walking home to a new residence with the latest modern appliances appeals to more and more buyers.

Because there aren't big swaths of land available in urban Phoenix, builders are focusing on "infill" housing on smaller lots.  Because land is at a premium, new townhome developments are mostly 3 story.

Here are 3 new developments that scratch the itch for "new" in urban Phoenix:

Uptown Row

Uptown Row townhomes  are ideally situated in midtown Phoenix, next to Camelback Road. These three-story homes have two or three bedrooms and a private two-car garage. European style interiors deliver crisp clean lines with warm finishes and durable concrete and tile flooring. Quartz countertops, stainless appliance and 10 foot ceilings are just some of the amenities that make these homes attractive to buyers. Huge glass sliding doors lead out to your private courtyard, where you can relax with a beverage and take in either mountain or city views.

Uptown Row is located in the historic Pierson Place district, home to funky Melrose shops and the ability to walk and bike to restaurants and boutiques. You’ll find a mix of architecture in the area, creating a diverse neighborhood that welcomes all comers.  The light rail is an easy walk away.


A simple design with bold execution is the philosophy behind the 25 townhomes at artHAUS, one of the newest developments in Downtown Phoenix on the edge of Midtown. This community delivers a choice of one, two or three story units. Simple, clean lines drive the design , which promotes environmental health through sustainable development, water conservation and attention to interior environmental quality. Use a community bike or take advantage of one of the electric vehicle charging stations to help conserve energy, and the Phoenix Light Rail is less than a block away on Central.

Center 8

If you love the First Fridays art walk on Roosevelt Row, you’ll appreciate  the Center 8 townhomes. This 30-townhome development is located between 7th and 9th Avenues on a residental street but still close to the action. These townhomes deliver modern amenities like home automation, an open great room concept and environmentally conscious construction. Residences are three story and feature a two-car garage and bonus room or den on the ground floor with the bedrooms on floor three. Large doors lead from the living room to the covered patio, where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the city.

Uptown or Downtown? It’s tough to make a choice when selecting the best modern townhome to deliver an urban lifestyle that meets your needs. Contact us when you’re ready to start looking and we’ll help you find the right townhome in urban Phoenix that works for you.
