Lofts located near the light rail line in Phoenix and Tempe are a way to get more of an “urban” feel than your traditional tile and stucco job found in most of our outlying cities. This week, I visited two different loft communities that I think are pretty cool.
The first place we stopped was the Lofts at Orchidhouse in Tempe which are located at 21 East 6th Street just East of Mill Avenue in the heart of the ultra-cool Mill Avenue District. For urban enthusiasts, this beautiful building and it’s loft style condominiums are a great fit. Just a short walk to two different light rail stations, the Lofts at Orchidhouse really are close to just about anything you could want. Great restaurants, shops, ASU, Sky Harbor International Airport, the Phoenix Zoo, Tempe Town Lake and much, much more. ( Click here to see homes for sale at the Lofts at Orchidhouse. )
The Artisan Lofts on Central in Phoenix is another building that I think is pretty darn cool. Built in 2004, these 40 condominiums are located at 1326 North Central Avenue between Roosevelt and McDowell in Phoenix. As far as the convenience of living near the light rail line, the Artisan Lofts are about as good as it gets. Just a short distance between the McDowell and the Roosevelt light rail stations, residents enjoy all that living near the METRO has to offer. Another bonus to living at the Artisan Lofts if the ultra-cool Cheauvront's Restaurant and Wine Bar which is located on the ground floor. ( Click here to see homes for sale at Artisan )
The many different types of housing located along the 20 mile stretch of the Phoenix Light Rail line allow people to search for lofts, condos, single family, historic, high rise and just about any type of home you could want. From very affordable to the lap of luxury, there is a place for just about anyone. Take a look around…
