Derby Roosevelt

Location: Roosevelt Row, Downtown Phoenix
General Contractor: Hensel Phelps

Roosevelt Row is downtown Phoenix’s walkable arts district, home to art galleries, restaurants, bars and boutique shops in a landscape sprinkled with vibrant street art. Whether you’re appreciating the art or touring some of Phoenix’s best art galleries and museums, Roosevelt Row is paradise for any kind of art lover.

Fans of Roosevelt Row (known to locals as “RoRo”) can thank the Salt River floods of the late 19th century for the Roosevelt Row Arts District that we know today. Had the floods not forced early residents of Phoenix northward, the city’s center may have grown along the river’s edge instead of the higher ground where it is.

Besides the striking single-family homes, you’ll find sleek apartments and condo projects that complement the eclectic mix of homes and buildings. You will also find something new — micro-apartments — smaller-than average studios with a footprint typically between 200 and 400 sq. ft. They are designed with an open concept where a bedroom, living space and kitchen all share one space. “These small unit apartments are the first of their kind in Phoenix and are an exciting
addition to the vibrant Roosevelt Row neighborhood,” said Hensel Phelps Project Manager John Doherty.

“We look at the entire project as a whole to ensure there are no gaps and try to catch issues during the project review,”
