PHOENIX, AZ - Shepley Bulfinch, a national architecture firm known for design excellence and innovation with offices in Boston, Houston and Phoenix, announced the grand opening for phase one of en Hance Park, a distinctive condominium development in downtown Phoenix.
This first of three project phases for en Hance Park comprises 49 units and 65,000 SF of total living space. Located at 2nd and Moreland Streets, en Hance Park overlooks Margaret T. Hance Park, a 32-acre green space and cultural destination, and is steps from the Roosevelt Row arts district and other urban amenities.
As one of the first new developments in this re-emerging downtown district, en Hance Park will serve as an anchor for future growth. Shepley Bulfinch is working closely with developer Sencorp on this transformational urban development project which, when complete, will cover almost an entire city block.
