The Phoenix Description
The Phoenix was built in 2007 by The Keating Companies, who tackled the condominium project as well as the redevelopment of the Post Office next door. The condominium stands 10 stories tall and contains 181 residences. The Phoenix is located at 1020 North Highland Street.
The first thing to know about The Phoenix are the numerous amenities the community provides. On the lobby level, there is front desk staff during business hours, a library, a conference room, a fitness center, and a theatre room. On the second floor, residents enjoy a spacious community room that can be rented out for meetings, parties, etc. On the 9th floor, there is an outdoor, rooftop pool and sundeck that is always a big hit during the warmer months. There is also a small courtyard available for resident use.
The Phoenix Condominium has floor plans that range from smaller studios, all the way up to 2 bedroom and den layouts. Walk-in closets come with every unit, including studios. Some optional features that may or may not be included are a fireplace, a balcony, and on the rare occurrence, an outdoor terrace. Balconies will look out over either Highland Street, 10th Street, Hudson Street, or the private courtyard.
