Why you'd want to live in Phoenix
Phoenix covers a vast geographic area and offers a wide array of housing options. Downtown Phoenix is a core employment and culture center with projected growth spurred by a new light-rail system, retail expansion and an upswing in commercial construction. Urban neighborhoods are experiencing a revival renovation and creation of upscale high-end homes and condominiums. Most of the city of Phoenix stretches north from South Mountain Park, the largest municipal park in the world. SOUTH MOUNTAIN VILLAGE South Mountain Village represents one of the “urban villages” designated by the Phoenix Planning Commission. The goal of each village in the city of Phoenix is to offer a unique choice of lifestyle in which residents may live, work and enjoy leisure activities within close proximity. South Mountain Village extends from the Rio Salado to the South Mountain Park Preserve. Despite it’s established neighborhoods, South Mountain Village is a young, developing area. Perhaps once considered a barrier to southward development, 16,500-acre South Mountain Park is now being eyed by developers. From the ridgeline of South Mountain to farm fields and urban neighborhoods, the village offers many different living in Maricopa County environments.
