Multifamily Living in Midcentury Modern Phoenix
After the initial postwar housing boom, marketing for housing in Uptown Phoenix on both east and west sides clear out to the 40's turned from single-family homes toward multifamily housing. Apartment buildings and this new concept called condominiums began to show up in glamorous late-50s advertising. Below are a few gems unearthed by Modern Phoenix and our research at The Phoenix City office of Historic Preservation, with shots of the dwellings today.
