Some were miffed when the the original building where Proxy333 now stands was torn down, but they’d be excited to hear the upcoming luxury apartments are still paying homage to what once was.

The Tilton Development Company and Goodman Real Estate developers commissioned local muralist Such Styles to work on murals at the new apartments, keeping the place feeling hip and vibrant.

Take a look at all of the photos of the murals, and of the apartment complex’s inside:

Proxy333 is at 333 E. McKinley St., just south of Roosevelt Row, and offers 118 luxurious units to attract folks who want to live in the downtown area, close to the art’s district. With live/work style models, and more, this development is keeping in line with recent luxury apartment trends.

The property that used to sit where Proxy333 is now had many murals on it, one of which was of a woman with flowers around her.

Proxy333’s developers have commissioned five site-specific mural pieces by Phoenix artist of 32 years, Noe “Such” Baez also known as Such Styles. Baez’s work appears in the leasing lobby, fitness center, recreational deck area and public restrooms, including a portrait of the former florist tenant, which is nearly completed.

Many luxury-style developments have been coming through the pipeline in downtown Phoenix, leaving many folks wondering if the right development is being put into place.

But Proxy333 and other developments are sticking close to Phoenix’s urban roots, including art work by local artists while still remembering to play a role in the community.

Proxy333 is scheduled to open for occupancy this summer.
