Phoenix Financial Center

Situated at Central and Osborn, the Phoenix Financial Center is one of the most iconic buildings in the Valley. The signature cluster of buildings developed by David H. Murdock and designed by architect W. A. Sarmiento features two adjacent rotundas and a south-facing curved tower highlighted by 12-inch vertical slots that bring to mind the image of a 10-story punch card. The gold-accented buildings were constructed in 1964 but the original plan of creating a identical north-facing tower was never completed.
