City NorthPhoenix, Arizona
City North is a mixed use urban community consisting of retail, entertainment, restaurant, hotel, corporate office and residential condominiums/apartments. The exterior of the Welcome Center was designed by Nelson Architects utilizing an assembly of modular components. To fully communicate the scope of City North, the entry was designed to reflect the hospitality of a hotel, the interactive display as a theater in the round, and the residential as a fully furnished condo vignette. The centerpiece of the Center is a 12′ x 18′ scale model of the master plan that has a control panel so guests can control the lighting of buildings and neighborhoods. Over 2,000 people and cars fill the model to demonstrate the lifestyle in the retail/entertainment districts.
