Downtown Phoenix has enjoyed tremendous growth since the completion of light rail and ASU opening its Downtown Phoenix Campus.
Prior to those two events there was very little reason to visit downtown Phoenix except to catch a Suns or Diamondback game. But almost like flicking a switch, ASU and light rail brought life to the core.
People young and old now enjoy the wide range of restaurants, entertainment, sporting venues, theaters and just plain old waking around that the area offers.
Favorite urban communities like Portland Place, 44 Monroe and Summit at Copper Square will soon be joined by the new development Portland on the Park.
And like I’ve said before, more urban communities bring more people, which encourage and support more small businesses which attract more people and on and on and on. And with ASU in the mix churning more growth the area will just get better.
