Central City Village

Central City Village is unique among the villages because its core is downtown, the urban center for the entire city. Downtown Phoenix, with its many government, business and cultural facilities, is the focal point of the expanding metropolitan region.

Many of the oldest neighborhoods in Phoenix surround the downtown. Some are designated historic districts and contain fine architecture and tree-lined streets. Most have strong neighborhood organizations that work on improvement efforts to enhance an old-fashioned neighborhood environment. Central City Village is a government and employment center; a transportation hub including freeways, public transit and Sky Harbor International Airport; and an exciting cultural, recreational and convention center.
