The Midtown Neighborhood Association is proud to announce the fourth annual Midtown Urban Living Tour to be held Saturday, November 5 from 11 AM – 5 PM. This self-guided tour will showcase homes in seven of Midtown’s finest buildings and offer the rare opportunity for tour-goers to explore residences in these buildings. All of the residences are new to the tour. Chateau de Ville is new to the tour.
The tour is designed for participants to get a true feel for urban living and each venue is conveniently located within walking distance of the light rail. Bike racks will be available at each location and we will also have a trolley circulating among the buildings on the tour. There is no cost for the trolley.
“Midtown Phoenix is home to a bustling business district, world-class museums and culture, fine restaurants, lush parks and a diverse mix of housing options,” said Susan Thompson, former president of the Midtown Neighborhood Association. “The Midtown Urban Living Tour will feature amazing homes and really highlight why Midtown is the prime Valley destination to combine live, work and play.”
