Roosevelt Point is getting ready for its debut.
Downtown Phoenix’s newest apartment community will be ready earlier than planned according to Steve Schnoor, senior vice president and regional director at Concord Eastridge, developer for the project.
“We’ve advanced the move-in date up to August 1, 2013, from August 15, 2013, because of the great progress our construction teams have made,” Schnoor said. “A model apartment will be finished soon and will show prospective residents the quality finishes and high-end design of their potential new home.”
Roosevelt Point’s management team is busy alerting people who have leased apartments that they can plan to move in early.
“With so many graduate-level students leasing our apartments, it benefits them to move in early and get settled in so they can focus on classes as soon as they start,” said Donte’ Brock, community manager for Roosevelt Point. “This is fantastic news for them and for all of our future residents.”
Located between Third and Fourth Streets at Roosevelt Street, Roosevelt Point is in the historic Evans Churchill neighborhood, at the heart of Phoenix’s popular Roosevelt Row Arts District which is close to restaurants, night life, shopping and cultural attractions — including First Fridays — as well as downtown sports arenas.
The apartment community will offer a mix of furnished and unfurnished studio, one-, two, three- and four-bedroom floor plans. Each bedroom will have a private bath. Upscale finishes and fixtures such as granite countertops, stainless steel appliances will be featured in each apartment which will also include a washer/dryer.
Amenities at the community will include a parking garage, media lounge, meeting rooms, hosting kitchens for entertaining groups and community events, as well as fitness and tanning facilities and spa-like swimming pools. All utilities, high-speed Internet and basic cable service will be included in the rent.
Retail space fronting Roosevelt and Fourth streets will be subdivided depending on future tenant needs. The company is seeking retailers that will appeal to all downtown residents.
Concord Eastridge is developing the housing, which will be owned jointly with EdR. EdR is the majority owner and managing member of the joint venture and will manage the community. Although EdR owns and manages several collegiate housing properties in Arizona, Roosevelt Point is EdR’s first development in the state.
General contractor is hardison/downey Construction.
