Have you ever wondered what it was like to live in an urban high-rise, with sweeping views of the Valley and shops and restaurants within steps of the ground floor? Now is your chance to see what urban living is like.

The Midtown Neighborhood Association hosts the third-annual Midtown Urban Living Tour, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7. The tour will feature some of midtown Phoenix’s finest residential buildings, showcasing homes in seven celebrated midtown communities. Tour goers will have the rare opportunity to explore selected homes in: Artisan Lofts on Central, Villa del Coronado, Regency House, Phoenix Towers, Tapestry, One Lexington, Executive Towers and Chateau on Central.

In true urban fashion, tour goers are encouraged to enjoy the convenience of riding the Light Rail for travel between communities. Pedal cabs and a trolley service will also be available and there will be bike racks at each property for cyclists. Before or after exploring midtown living options, tour goers may stop for a bite at one of the many excellent restaurants found in the area, some of which will offer special deals for tour goers showing evidence of ticket purchase.

Tickets are $15 in advance online, and $20 the day of the tour. Tickets can be purchased in person the day of at Regency on Central, 2323 N. Central Ave., which also is where the self-guided tour starts. For more information, go to www.UrbanLivingTour.com.
