Willo/Roosevelt is named after two of downtown Phoenix’s most popular historic districts. Look for Tudor and bungalow-style houses with big porches and newer urban condos intermixed beautifully together. Offices and restaurants are here, too.
Downtown is having a housing boom with many new condo and apartment projects going up. ASU’s downtown campus and University of Arizona’s Phoenix medical school can be found here as well as student housing. The area draws big crowds for jobs, conventions, professional baseball and basketball games and cool cultural events, including First Fridays. But on weeknights when there isn’t a big sporting event, the business district can clear out after work.
Coronado is named after the historic neighborhood on the east end of the Downtown Phoenix area. Coronado has eclectic Spanish-style and bungalow houses. Seventh Street runs along the west side of this neighborhood and is a popular local restaurant hub. Pockets of this area are still waiting to be revitalized.
