The land purchased by Lincoln Ventures is expected to be used to build Moontower PHX, a proposed 24-story, 460,036-square foot apartment building. The first floor will contain office and retail office components, floors two through eight will be a parking garage and floors nine-24 feature apartments. There will be 326 total units.
The project will feature market leading amenities, including a ground floor coffee to cocktails concept, co-working and conference spaces with business lounge, secure bike parking and a dog run. The rooftop pool deck boasts incredible views of downtown Phoenix, plus an aqua lounge, grills and spa. The building will also have a state-of-the-art fitness studio, including yoga and meditation room, spin studio and saunas.
“We are big believers in the Roosevelt Row Arts District and are very excited to bring a high-quality living environment into this exciting district,” says Brendan Morrow, Chief Development Officer for Lincoln Ventures. “We are eager to partner with local artists on artwork and murals for the building, further weaving our building into the fabric of the district.”
