Officials break ground on high-rise apartments in downtown Phoenix
PHOENIX — People looking to live in downtown Phoenix will have more options by next year as the Adeline luxury high-rise apartment building goes up.
Developers on Tuesday broke ground on the 25-story building at Jefferson and Third streets near Talking Stick Resort Arena and the new Fry’s grocery store.
The 480,000-square-foot structure will have 75 studio, 179 one-bedroom and 125 two-bedroom apartments. Leasing prices have yet to be finalized, according to a press release.
Amenities will include an outdoor junior Olympic-size swimming pool, a 2,800-square-foot gym, an indoor “great room,” conference areas, a dog spa, bike storage, concierge service, a coffee bar and an outdoor kitchen with firepits.
“The downtown population has doubled in the last five years and is expected to double again over the next five,” Mayor Kate Gallego, who was present at the groundbreaking, said in the release.
“Ensuring an adequate housing supply for new downtowners is crucial to ensuring our city’s success. Adeline will help residents make a home in our downtown.”
Adeline will also have about 4,500 square feet of retail space at street level and three levels of underground parking.
Construction is expected to be completed late this year or in early 2021.
The building was named after Mary “Adeline” Norris Gray, the city’s first female European settler.
