LMC has announced the opening of Muse, a mixed-use community located in the central arts district of midtown Phoenix.
The luxury midrise development features 367 apartment homes and 11,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, which includes Press Coffee, Forno 301 Pizzeria and Bar, Salon D’Shayn and Community Florist. Move-ins began in mid-May.
“The revitalization movement in downtown Phoenix has really created a vibrant atmosphere, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it,” said Scott Johnson, division president for LMC. “We believe Muse will provide an unmatched experience for those craving quality living within the pulse of the city. This is inspired urban living at its finest, as our residents are within steps of some of the city’s best museums, entertainment venues and dining options.”
Situated at 1616 N. Central Avenue, Muse is part of a renaissance in the greater downtown area. The walkable, amenity-driven community sits within a block of the Phoenix Theater, Phoenix Art Museum and Phoenix Opera.
Adding to the locational amenities of midtown and downtown, Muse has seen incredible success in attracting quality restaurant and retail uses for the commercial component of the community. Residents don’t have to leave the property to pick up a premium cup of coffee or meet up with friends for drinks at one of Phoenix’s most authentic pizzerias. The full-service salon and florist provide great on-site amenities as well.
Muse is also commuter friendly, positioned within a block of the McDowell/Central Avenue light rail station and a short drive from Interstate 10. A vast array of dining, shopping and entertainment venues are within minutes, including Talking Stick Resort Arena, Chase Field and Phoenix Convention Center. Downtown Phoenix is quickly accessible via light rail and the community is within a 15-minute drive of Sky Harbor Airport.
Muse consists of studio, 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartment homes ranging in square footage from 506 to 1,323. Community amenities include a two-story volume clubhouse with outdoor lounge and prime views of the city, 2400 square-foot fully equipped fitness center, resort-style swimming pool with hot tub and dramatic sculptural water feature, Zen garden, secure bike storage and a pet-grooming center. The community also offers recycling services and car-charging stations.
Apartment interiors are equipped with stainless steel GE appliances including side-by-side refrigerators, quartz countertops, glass tile backsplashes, wood-style flooring, soft-close wood cabinetry, under-cabinet lighting, front-loading washers and dryers, walk-in closets and high-end contemporary finishes and fixtures.
Including Muse, LMC has more than 1,000 apartment homes in operation, planned or under construction in the Phoenix area.
