Proxy 333 Drives Efficient Design to Evans Churchill

Tilton Development Company’s latest project is designed to set itself apart from its neighbors.

Proxy 333 takes up a quarter of a block in Roosevelt Row, directly across from an upcoming phase of the Phoenix Biomedical Campus. At the corner of Fourth and McKinley streets, the development combines artist partnerships, mixed-use, walkability, shade, a welcoming façade, and context-sensitivity to the surrounding, changing neighborhood to produce something yet unseen in the glut of new units arriving in the Evans Churchill neighborhood.

The Project name is derived from both the meaning and the application of the word “Proxy” – “the agency, function, or power of a person authorized to act as the deputy or substitute for another.” As a high-end, urban infill property in Downtown Phoenix, Proxy provides its residents immediate proximity to the Arts District, while staying close to the massive employment centers of the Biomedical campus, Arizona State University, and TGen. As an exclusive destination product with an exceptional location, Proxy encourages its residents to live, work, and play without compromise.

While so many apartment developments have produced mega blocks and/or neglected shade in this area, Proxy walks the walk. The apartment project runs right up to the street with commercial spaces along Fourth Street and a public lobby on the corner, while laying the foundation for full pedestrian shade coverage with an overhang extending from the building, and trees buffering the sidewalk from the street. The project also features a parking ratio below one-per-unit to encourage car-free living, and was built without any major city tax incentives, unlike many other new developments in the area.

Across 118 efficiently laid-out units, Proxy provides primarily studio and one-bedroom units, with a handful of two-bedrooms, and ten studio-loft/live-work units. All units include energy-efficient appliances and high ceilings, plus shared access to the podium deck with pool and recreation facilities, dog run along the property line, fitness center, lobby kitchen and lounge, and rooftop observation deck.

Units range from roughly 450-850 square-feet, making the most of their shared amenities and proximity to employment entertainment around central Phoenix, with rents starting at $1000 per month.

Though this is its first urban infill project in greater downtown Phoenix, Tilton Development is already looking ahead to future developments to provide ever-more housing options to the booming city center. Recent related projects include a 322-unit apartment project in Tempe called Residences at Fountainhead, with an additional apartment project in Metro Phoenix in the works.

Proxy 333 is ready for immediate move-in, at 333 E. McKinley along Roosevelt Row in the Evans Churchill neighborhood. Schedule a walkthrough by contacting their leasing office at (480) 750-4872 or visit their website at
