Phoenix, America’s 6th largest city, presents a plethora of possibilities for its visitors and residents. A cosmopolitan city with buildings rising from the SonoranDesert like the mountains that surround it, the metropolis reawakened after centuries of dormancy from its Hohokam inhabitants. The canals the Hohokam built centuries ago that once criss-crossed the Valley were later reused for modern irrigation.
This historic repurposing continues in downtown Phoenix to this day. The 14-story-Art Deco Luhrs Tower, built in 1929 and once featured in Hitchcock’s Psycho, will team with its 10-story brother, the Luhrs Building, built in 1924 and Phoenix’s first high-rise, to house a Marriott, retail and commercial spaces, and become today’s Luhrs City Center.
A block away, the recently developed CityScape hosts multiple dining and nightlife options, revitalizing Phoenix’s urban core.
