The regional $1.2 billion, 20-mile Metro Phoenix Light Rail system begins on the eastern end of Mesa, travels through the main ASU campus in Tempe, over Tempe Town Lake, proceeding along Washington Street just north of Sky Harbor Airport with connections to the Sky Harbor people mover system, arriving at Copper Square in downtown Phoenix and access to the new UA/ASU medical campus, ASU downtown campus, Phoenix Convention Center, Chase Field, U.S. Airways Center, Herberger and Orpheum Theaters and all downtown venues, before turning north on Central Avenue, eventually turning west on Camelback and then north again on 19th Avenue.
Home buyers seeking Phoenix real estate an urban environment have access to a new light rail and bus transportation network to quickly move through the heart of Metro Phoenix. Due to the popularity of light rail, plans to expand the line are underway.
Some of the most popular Phoenix housing choices include new high and mid-rise lakefront luxury condos being built in Tempe or Phoenix condos for sale on Central or historic homes that were built at the turn of the last century in the Parks districts. Homes and condos in the downtown area are surprisingly affordable for a major city and well worth exploring along the the light rail system that opened in December 2008. This map specifies the planned "park and ride" locations. Each rail car includes sufficient space for 4 wheel chairs and 4 bicycles, too. Fares are very reasonable to encourage ridership!
If you are planning ahead to when your child attends one of the ASU campuses, should consider Tempe condos for sale along the light rail line now to take advantage of today's low prices and rent it out until your child is ready to attend college. Then while they are in college at ASU, you can still have income coming in by renting out the second bedroom to another student. Demand for Tempe condos for sale will always make them good investments. If you are really looking ahead, here are the planned extensions to the light rail system.
