Several hotels, multi-family, and office projects are all close to starting construction in the downtown area of Phoenix, the fifth-largest city in the country. 

Market Overview 

Downtown Phoenix is a major financial and government center for the southwest.

Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, and Bank of America all have a major presence in the neighborhood, as does Arizona State University. City, state, and county government offices are also located in downtown Phoenix. 

All of this makes the city center an attractive center for new development. Apartments lead the way in construction, but there are also hotel and commercial construction projects underway or in planning in the Valley of the Sun.
