Living Along The Metro Light Rail - Properties For Sale

Light station profiles, public art, neighborhoods, condos and homes on the light rail. 

The Metro Light Rail is very new in the Central Phoenix landscape, but it feels like it's been here for decades. It's already well ingrained in the city. Transportation is an important factor in the way of life in Phoenix and any alternatives, viable alternatives to automobiles are very welcome and the light rail was a needed mode because urban living is on the comeback.metro light rail in downtown phoenix

The Metro Light Rail is like a magnet and as are many other transportation routes: they draw development around them and with it people, density, culture and business: vibrancy, a place where local color develops and evolves at a greater speed and depth then sleeper communities.

There is a large variety of property types along the Phoenix light rail.  A more heavy concentration of homes on the northern end, then condos and lofts in Midtown and Downtown Phoenix, but also many of the historic neighborhoods are within walking distance to light rails stations: Willo, Windsor Square, Medlock Place to name a few.

Many of the high-rises condo loft project like Lexington One rose solely because of the urban revival and the light rail, and the rebirth has not stopped: it continues with CityScape in downtown Phoenix and the many businesses and educational institution located there like ASU which has a growing and influential presence.

About The Phoenix Light Rail

The Metro Light Rail was born from the Transit 2000 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and the first 20 mile-section opened on December 27th, 2008.  I remember that day well.  It was a win for everyone and very exciting for transportation like this to be reborn in Phoenix. 

I write reborn because thee used to be a street car service in Phoenix from 1887 to 1948.  In fact some of the remaining vehicles of that period can see seen at the Arizona Street Railway Museum across the street from the Phoenix Public Library.

The light rail has become a beacon toward the future of what Phoenix may become.  It is an image of growth and cooperation.  I took a lot of effort to make it happen.  I think that even the naysayers will have a different opinion in the future, but for now thousands are taking advantage of it for fun and work.
