Moroccan Apartments

Formerly at 6530 North 3rd Avenue Moroccan Apartments by Al Beadle
Collection of the Modern Phoenix Archive

These apartments were designed for Mary Ellen and Ralph Graham. "21 completely furnished 1 and 2 bedroom units - conveniently located in the north central area". The exotic theme is right in line with what other complexes were doing to market the easy breezy desert lifestyle. The trough-shaped waffle roofline, however, is quite unique and in very limited supply in the Valley. The complex has since been demolished.
