CityScape Phoenix is a high-rise mixed-use development in Downtown Phoenix consisting of residential, retail, office, and hotel components. The development covers three city blocks in the heart of Downtown Phoenix and is located between First Avenue and First Street to the west and east, and between Washington and Jefferson streets to the north and south. A portion of the development was built on the land formerly occupied by Patriots Square Park through a redevelopment agreement with the City of Phoenix. It is centrally located in the heart of Downtown Phoenix, within walking distance[1] of US Airways Center, Chase Field, Comerica Theatre, the Orpheum Theatre and the Phoenix Convention Center.

CityScape hosts a number of major events throughout the year, including the CitySkate Outdoor Holiday Ice Rink[2] in the winter, the starting line for the P.F. Chang's Rock n’ Roll Arizona Marathon,[3] the main stage for the Viva PHX Music Festival, and more.

CityScape Office Tower[edit]

Phase I of the development consists of a 27-story Class A office tower. The tower houses a number of corporate offices and law firms, including major tenants Alliance Bank and United Healthcare. The office tower is also home to the corporate headquarters of RED Development, the owner and developer of CityScape Phoenix.

Hotel/Residential Tower[edit]

The adjacent high-rise tower has a dual purpose. The first 10 floors of the tower houses the 242-room boutique Kimpton's Hotel Palomar Phoenix. Hotel Palomar opened in July 2012. Floors 11 through 24 house the CityScape Residences. The Residences offer 224 luxury apartments with penthouse units gracing the top floors.
