Phoenix’s Midtown District is known for its collection of artistic venues, including the Phoenix Art Museum, The Heard Museum, and The Arizona Opera. By next spring, that list of artful spaces will grow with the addition of a new architecturally unique residential project called ArtHAUS.
ArtHAUS will fill in a portion of the vacant lot on 1st Avenue, near Central Avenue and McDowell Road. It will feature a total of 25 units, including seven three-level townhomes, 15 two-level lofts, and three single-level flats. The project will break ground this month and is anticipated to be completed by May of 2016.
According to Jason Boyer, the architect and developer of ArtHAUS, the concept behind his project is to “provide an attainable, well-designed, well-located urban infill residential choice.”
ArtHAUS residents will be able to live in an artistic and thoughtfully-designed urban dwelling in the cultural center of Phoenix, with easy access to light rail and the many restaurants, galleries, shops and events that are drawing more and more people to Downtown Phoenix.
The smallest unit in ArtHAUS is approximately 550 square feet and the largest is around 1900 square feet. Prices range from $156,000 to $490,000.
Boyer’s focus on attainable, well-designed living spaces was inspired by Phoenix, but he also took some cues from projects in Southern California, where “a more attentive eye to design and the living experience” proved to be favorable amongst buyers. Boyer hopes to infuse this idea into Downtown’s fast-evolving residential landscape.
ArtHAUS is set to be an architectural point of interest in Midtown Phoenix, contributing to the personality and value of the neighborhood, while creating a sense of place for those who live in and around it.
