Portland Place Brings Spectacular Views and History Together

Portland Place homes have the distinction of being located within the very prominent Roosevelt Historic and Arts District in downtown Phoenix. On the north side of the building, just a little south of Margaret T. Hance Park, residents are offered spectacular vistas of the Ro Ho En Japanese Friendship Garden, as well as many scenic vistas of midtown Phoenix.


Homebuyers who purchase Portland Place condos for sale can choose from either one- or two-bedroom floor plans. All Portland Place condos come with contemporary and high-end finishes and include high ceilings and gourmet kitchens. Bathrooms are modern and glass windows are efficient, with some units offering balconies. When residents go up to the large rooftop of the building, they will be greeted with 360-degree amazing views of the city (including South Mountain’s surreal sunsets), gas barbecue grills, and a resort-style pool. On the first floor, a state-of-the-art fitness center and community lounge await. The lobby in Portland Place won an Excellence Award in 2009 from the Southwest Chapter of the International Interior Design Association. A secure, private, underground parking area is available for residents.
