Over the past few decades, urban living has exploded in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Originally known for wide open spaces, Valley residents craved the diversity, excitement and conveniences urban living offered, and developers delivered. Today you can now choose from modern lofts, luxury high rise towers and convenient condo living in Downtown Phoenix, Biltmore Area and Downtown Scottsdale. Residents love the convenience to hip eateries, fun coffee houses, boutique shops and public transportation. The lock and leave lifestyle is appealing to many, as well as the easy accessibility to arts and entertainment within walking distance.
