and a little background info on Phoenix in case you are unfamiliar with it


Quote:
Phoenix /ˈfiːˌnɪks/ (English: Phoenix, Navajo: Hoozdo, lit. "the place is hot", Western Apache: Fiinigis) is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. state of Arizona and the county seat of Maricopa County. It is the largest capital city in the United States. Its physical location is along the banks of the normally dry Salt River. It was incorporated as a city on February 25, 1881. Residents of Phoenix are known as Phoenicians.

Phoenix had an estimated 2006 population of 1,512,986, making it the fifth largest city in the United States.[2] Phoenix has expansive city limits (515 square miles), and it has the 10th highest land area for a city in the United States. As of 2006, the Phoenix Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) was the 13th largest in the United States, with an estimated population of 4,039,182.

Nice photos. Seems like they should build more 50+ story buildings in Phoenix. I see plenty of parking lots for them.

airport next to downtown means 500 foot height limit

but hopefully someday the suburbs like Glendale will get 50 story buildings

I think the area in either downtown Scottsdale or over by Westgate city center in Glendale have the greatest potential they are already going to build like a 20 story building out there

October is a good month to visit in the beginning of the month highs are in the 90s and by the end of the month highs are in the low 80s which is pleasant with the low humidity

Nice job but 98% of these photos are extremely outdated. Downtown Phoenix has a TON of construction going on.

Great photos. Number 48 actually reminds me of Europe for some reason. Downtown (I believe it's called Copper Square?) is very clean and nice. The DASH buses are an improvement over DASH buses in downtown Los Angeles which aren't free (though still only 25 cents). Tempe is my favorite place in the Phoenix area. Downtown Glendale and Scottsdale also rank up there.

Phoenix had alot of cranes in it when I was there earlier this year. Also the light rail was under construction. When everything is complete, it will be even better. What is the housing situation like in downtown Phoenix?
