MONROE STREET ABBEY
302 W. Monroe St.
The historic Monroe Street Abbey will be restored as a dynamic center for the Greater Phoenix area. The Abbey was almost destroyed by fire in 1984, and was later declared a hazard. But, like the Phoenix it rose from its ashes. The current owner saved this building and has invested millions of dollars into structurally stabilizing the walls and rebuilding the floors. The Project will include a performing arts stage in the open‐air courtyard, both informal and formal restaurants, and a bakery/coffee shop, and a Speakeasy in the basement. The ground floor, second floor and fourth floor will be utilized as the restaurant and bar spaces. The third floor offers space for creative office, and the western first floor will be the Arts and Cultural Space. This dynamic public space has an extraordinary environment evocative of Arizona’s heritage. The sponsor anticipates that all tenants will be locally‐owned. The furnishings and landscaping will be designed around Southwestern styles. The Project will be a wonderful place to host community entertainment, local arts, dining, concerts and events.
