Phoenix Loft and Brownstone Residences

Developed in a three phase project, Portland Place consists of over 200 luxury residences situated on 3.2 acres within the heart of Phoenix’s Roosevelt Historic and Art District. Construction on the first phase began last spring and is scheduled to be completed in spring 2007. Downtown’s renaissance, coupled with the Roosevelt neighborhood’s vibrant heritage and Portland Place’s park setting, has already led to extensive interest in the project’s first phase. Phase I is currently closing out, and an Interest List has formed for Phase II.
Located on Portland Park between Central and 3rd Avenue, these condominiums and brownstones offer 892 to 2,829 SQ FT of living space, 1BR/1BA to a 2+BR/2.75BA Penthouse and range in price from $318,900 to $1,132,900. Every unit has a private balcony that treats you to amazing views of downtown Phoenix, Portland Park, West Sunsets, and the Japanese friendship garden. Also being minutes from arts, sports, fine dining, shopping, Light Rail Station, ASU, and Sky Harbor Airport, Portland Place is the heart of Phoenix. Under Construction, Phase 1 is expected to be complete in Spring of 2007.
Current Price Range: $318,900 to $1,132,900
2 Bedroom units starting at $499,900.
New Downtown housing
Some developers see slowing market, cut their plans back
Developers are whittling and revising Downtown’s paper population of high-rise condos in response to a slowing real estate market.
Over the past five years, developers have proposed about 1,200 condo units and more than 200,000 square feet of retail in and around Downtown. But a real estate market that produced the spectacle of people camping out overnight to snap up 120 Foothills condos in three hours in March 2005 has cooled considerably.
Ron Schwabe, general partner in 44 Broadway and a partner in the Depot Plaza project, said he’s convinced the market for high-end condos exists, but he wants to lower his prices. The loft-condos themselves will still be upscale, he said, but he is reconsidering plans for a rooftop garden and major changes in the building’s facade to make it possible to price some units below $200,000.
Schwabe is the local partner with Williams & Dame of Portland, Ore., in Depot Plaza and a related project which will ultimately combine to cover the blocks on either side of 200 East Congress Street with apartments, condos and city-built housing for the elderly and disabled.
First up is conversion of the vacated Martin Luther King Jr. housing project into 85 market- rate apartments and 11 subsidized apartments, which the city will help underwrite.
The Lake Oswego, Mix business with pleasure
The 24 condominiums at Stafford Commons in downtown Lake Oswego allow for homeowners to live and work in a space they own. Within the past few years, downtown Lake Oswego has become a sort of town square where a combination of different lifestyles come together at the open-air farmers market, local boutiques, post office, library and restaurants – all within walking distance. Taking part in this active lifestyle is convenient if you live nearby the new social and economic activities.
A shiny new Portland
Downtown isn’t what she used to be. The small, poorly lit, slightly dirty Safeway has long since been demolished and replaced by a shinier version topped by higher-end apartments. The ever-boring Buffalo Exchange has replaced Ozone Records, the grungy little record store that used to be across from Powell’s that added so much flavor to the downtown experience.
