ABOUT PHOENIX

Phoenix is the capital of the southwestern U.S. state of Arizona. The metropolitan area is the 5th largest by population in the United States, with approximately 4.85 million people as of 2020.  According to US News, Phoenix ranked #40 in Best Places to Live and #24 in Fastest-Growing Places in 2021-2022.  This is the 5th year in a row that it is the fastest growing city in America.

 

Known for its year-round sun and warm temperatures, it anchors a sprawling, multi-city metropolitan area known as the Valley of the Sun.  It's known for high-end spa resorts, vibrant nightclubs, and several impeccably designed championships courses have made Phoenix one of the top golf destinations in the world.  Phoenix has a variety of sophisticated urban landscapes, southwest culture and lots of outdoor adventure for all to enjoy.  Other highlights include the Desert Botanical Garden, displaying cacti and numerous native plants.

Phoenix is a sprawling metropolis that continues to grow.  From exciting high-rise developments to loft living, Downtown Phoenix has been going through a transformation for many years and is now an even more desirable place to live.  There are food markets, cultural events, museums, sporting events and more going on all of the time.  A Light Rail service was built to make getting around town much more easy and to ease traffic.

There are so many charming downtown residential neighborhoods to enjoy.  Or, if a high-rise with views is more your speed, there are many wonderful buildings that can offer you that lifestyle. Outside of downtown, there are dozens of wonderful communities and neighborhoods to choose from, such as Arcadia, the Biltmore and the Desert Ridge area.

Phoenix is a golf mecca with dozens of challenging and beautiful private and public courses. In addition, it is home to some spectacular resorts such as the world-famous Phoenician and the Arizona Biltmore. Shopping is easy to come by in Phoenix with the Biltmore Fashion Park and dozens of smaller shopping malls with boutiques and chain stores alike.

The "Valley of the Sun" as Phoenicians refer to it, is surrounded by mountain parks—in fact, South Mountain Park and Preserve is the largest municipal park in the U.S.—so it's easy to get out and enjoy the flora, fauna and some incredible views (and sunsets). And, although Phoenix is in the Sonoran Desert, there are six lakes in close proximity where water lovers can kayak, paddleboard, waterski, boat, fish or just lounge on the shore. 

For the sports fans, Phoenix is the home to multiple professional sports teams – The Arizona Diamondbacks, the Arizona Cardinals, the Phoenix Suns and the Phoenix Coyotes. Two of the major sports venues, Chase Field (baseball) and the US Airways Center (basketball), are located downtown and the new University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona hosted the Superbowl in 2008 and again in 2014.

If you like hiking, Phoenix is home to Camelback Mountain, an immediately recognizable landmark in the skyline. While the hike can be challenging, the views from the top are phenomenal. For less-experienced hikers, there are several other areas to enjoy.

As the world grapples with an ongoing chip shortage, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) committed to invest $100 Billion in a manufacturing plant located in North Phoenix and North Peoria.  TSMC will start making 5-nanometer chips in 2024 at a rate of 20,000 wafers each month.  TSMC purchased more than 1,128 acres for $89 million which is expected to result in around 1,900 jobs.  Hundreds of homes are being planned near TSMC.
