Downtown Phoenix Videos

Phoenix is planning a new park called Civic Space. It will be between Central Avenue and 1st Avenue, between Central Station and the old Post Office. ASU Downtown is across Central from it. The City Council has tentatively approved a controversial piece of art by Boston artist Janet Echelman. Here is a video on a similar piece in Portugal.

A couple of blocks south, 44 Monroe, a new high rise condo development at First Avenue and Monroe, is about to open. Here is a video promoting 44 Monroe.
