A series of new developments in Downtown Phoenix promise to redefine the market and create a strong urban core. Like projects in major metropolitans, many of these new communities are focused on lifestyle and amenities that create a true live-work-play atmosphere. Among the projects to spring up is Millennium Park Central, a 278-unit apartment development from The Dinerstein Cos. The project is a revitalization of the Park Central mall project.

“Our vision of Millennium Park Central is that of a cornerstone residential high-rise component signifying the rebirth of the original Park Central Mall development from the 1950s,” Nicholas Weidner, senior project manager at Cuningham Group Architecture, the design firm behind the project, tells GlobeSt.com. “Millennium Park Central represents a new movement to the blossoming future of urban infill opportunities in the midtown Phoenix Central corridor area and beyond.”

In addition to revitalizing a neglected piece of property, the apartment community will also reestablish historic architectural design elements into the property to create a new property that can represent both Phoenix’s past and future. “There is a strong history of Mid-Century Modern architecture at Park Central and throughout Phoenix,” says Weidner. “Our project nods to these historic roots while looking ahead to the changing dynamic of new technology, materials, energy-efficiency, and resident amenities incorporated as part of new urbanism concepts.”
