Jackson Street was envisioned as Phoenix’ first urban creative class, sustainable, live-work-play district, with economic and community benefits helping to shape the positive evolution of the City’s downtown. The diversity and quality of its proposed uses were proposed to help make Jackson Street an exemplary new-urbanism development of national interest.
Bordered by Jefferson Street to the north, 4th Street and Chase Field ballpark to the east, Central Avenue to the West, and the railroad tracks to the south, the total area is approximately 33.5 acres.
The District was planned as a diverse yet cohesive whole, with specific project elements and programs planned to bring vitality and a diverse commercial economic balance.
A resident population, along with the visitors brought there by the District’s attractions, were envisioned to help stimulate continual activity throughout the day, evening, and after hours.
