This corner unit at The PORTLAND 2 in Phoenix counts nearly 2,000 square feet and—naturally—a city view!
When initial renderings for this 25-unit townhome development in Downtown Phoenix’s Evans Churchill neighborhood (a vintage – yet new downtown phoenix neighborhood) within Roosevelt Row emerged 13+ years ago, nearby neighbors applauded the project as being “sexy with a colorful twist” and the sort of infill that Phoenix needs. It was one of the early new historic revitalization projects that helped reshape the skyline and generated a buzz about the area from skid row to an increasingly attractive place to live, work and play!
But exclusivity is part of the allure in this historic district, which counts Roosevelt Row as a main draw.
Thirteen years after the project—named The PORTLAND 2 at Roosevelt Row, as a nod to its neighborhood — debuted, hundreds of townhomes and condos in the same general area have popped up across downtown Phoenix, as asking prices climb higher with some beyond the $1 million mark.
Listed in recent days for $460,000 via Juan Pesqueira, this four-level corner unit is the perfect size by Phoenix townhome standards: nearly 2,000 square feet and a garage that fits Two cars—and then some.
Topped by a balcony-terrace with downtown Phoenix skyline views! The contemporary (modern)-designed space was built by PORTLAND MOLLY PROPERTIES and includes exposed ductwork on level 2 and 4 with a steel staircase giving it sort of an industrial feel.
This townhome features 3 large bedrooms (make one your office/Gym) and 3.5 bathrooms. A bold style blended with clean lines and warm, comfortable spaces… and Soaring ceilings. The Current Owner swears they have one of the best views for Chase Field 4th of July fireworks extravaganza and other firework celebrations from the 4th story penthouse suite master bedroom.
For $460,000 you can stop imagining and start living a downtown Phoenix urban lifestyle that combines elegance, privacy, and views. Points of interest’s steps from your front door include Roosevelt Row, Chase field, cool restaurants, breweries, entertainment, Hence Park, and art galleries! Juan Pesqueira says come check it out today!
** BONUS ** Here is my Q & A with current owner (s) & insight to the lifestyle…
What is something that stands out from the master bedroom (penthouse suite)?
Well everyone says this is where the magic happens, right? Just kidding… 4th of July and any baseball game with fireworks was awesome!
What is lifelike at 529 E Ames Pl?
First Fridays were a blast. We had friends over every month and walked to the festivities. Any events going on downtown we are a walk or bike ride away. We got into a yelp event at one of the breweries, wine festivals, the chili pepper festival… Saturday farmer markets. we went to so many shows at the Ogden theater and symphony hall, we had season tickets to the Herberger shows. Too many great restaurants and bars to list. I would run downtown before work most of the year and loved it. I also joined golds gym so I could work out when it was too hot to run. I took the light rail to/from work at Honeywell. We took our dogs to hence dog park a lot. We also loved almost all our neighbors. We would have drinks at each other’s places and go out in town.
What about the commute?
The airport is a cheap taxi/Uber ride. Really with the easy highway access it really was not too difficult to get places. And since drew worked at Luke he was always going the opposite of traffic, so the daily commute was not bad.
I really wish we had been there longer than we were.
