Similar to other millennials gravitating toward urban living, the overall vibe is what initially attracted Tanya Moushi — a 29-year-old web design and startup consultant. She was the first tenant to move into the Union.
Originally from Chicago, she said that her friends in well-established cities like San Francisco, Chicago and New York don’t really get it.
But Moushi stays in Downtown Phoenix for reason.
“When you’re here, you’re really part of the build,” she said, “not riding off of what other people have done.”
Besides the convenience of living in the walkable Roosevelt neighborhood, sustainability is another selling point for house-hunters.
A sustainable landscaping medium called “structural soil” was used to ensure that the trees along the sidewalk thrive and provide shade for years to come.
Made up of pavers separated by small pebbles, the structural soil allows water to seep through to the roots of the trees instead of running off into the street. The design also allows the roots to grow deeper.
And as a bonus, the pavers add character to the street-level experience.
While walkability and bikeability are important in an urban center, the reality is that parking is still important for many people.
The development takes this into consideration by offering on-site parking for retail customers (free with validation), and a handful of metered parking spaces along Roosevelt Street. Residents have access to a separate underground parking garage.
The units are spacious and bright, with subway tiles in the kitchen, stainless steel appliances and contemporary fixtures.
Most units offer sweeping views of the city and private patios, which are larger than the standard apartment size.
Union @ Roosevelt units range from 548-square-foot studios to two-bedroom 1,460-square-foot townhomes. Prices range from $925 to $2550 per month.
