Recently I was in Phoenix for the Modern Phoenix Home Tour. I hadn’t been to Phoenix in a while, and the hotel turned out to be in the neighborhood we had rented a house in fourteen years ago, called Roosevelt Row.
I had a couple of hours on a Saturday morning to walk around the neighborhood, and it was hopping! There were some new buildings, but many were buildings that had been newly built when we lived there. Those buildings had settled in and aged well, and things were looking really cohesive. It was nice to see some good urbanism coming together in Phoenix.
