The Uptown Phoenix neighborhood centers at the light-rail area around Central Avenue and Camelback Road. The area has become a hotbed of restaurants, pubs, shops, office space and residential area. 


As a member of the Uptown Phoenix community Launch realtor and Uptown Phoenix resident Jeffery Wilde, finds himself spending a lot of time at Uptown Plaza, The Yard or The Colony – frequenting local restaurants, bars, coffee shops, shops and everything else the area has to offer. 

Built in 1955 and recently restored, Uptown Plaza combines its modern charm with a unique mix of family friendly retailers. Whether you’re looking to grab a quick burger or an after dinner dessert treat, you’ll find a handful of options to suit everyone’s taste buds.
