Phoenix mid-century landmark to be demolished for boomer retirement home
[Source: Eugene Scott, Arizona Republic, June 24, 2008] — Retired Valley residents interested in living the good life in midtown Phoenix may be able to move forward in that direction this year. If all goes as planned, the old Mountain Bell Plaza building, 3033 N. Third St., will be torn down in the fall to be replaced by a retirement community.
By Dec. 1, a San Diego-based developer plans to open a sales office for luxury townhouses, condominiums, and apartments. Montage Senior Living will be “a very high-end, five-star retirement living community” on nine acres, developer Joe Pinsonneault said. Units could start at $600,000 and could be as much as $2.5 million, Pinsonneault said. [Note: To read the full article, click here.]
