As 2024 is in full swing, the list of what is going right in the Central Phoenix corridor is a long one that provides much to celebrate for our residents, city, and state. Terrific cities have a personality and a vibe that is uniquely their own. And a vital urban core is often a critical driver in what makes a city great. Civic pride happens in collaboration between neighbors, neighborhoods, corporate citizens, smart government, and willing investors who collectively foster a “can do” spirit that welcomes all people and makes room for new ideas.
Anyone who has been in Phoenix for a long time or even the last few years can easily see that Central Phoenix is on the move in a big way. It feels like we have reached a tipping point and momentum is full throttle. At almost every turn, there is something noteworthy going on across a wide range of sectors: multifamily housing, infill development, neighborhood revitalization, university expansion projects, new construction, restaurants, museums, Roosevelt Row’s national prominence, and sports and entertainment venues. Where challenges remain, I am confident that solutions will follow. It is truly an exciting time to live, work and play in Central Phoenix.
