Building Mornings

One’s brisk morning walk gets cultural with the monthly networking series, Building Mornings, brainchild of Reinvent Phoenix — which focuses on walkable communities, offers an in-depth examination of historic local architecture. This week’s walk explores the Luhrs City Center, an Art Deco skyscraper from 1929 still standing in the heart of downtown Phoenix. Once the tallest building in the Southwest, the Valley’s crown jewel now houses cocktail bar Bitter and Twisted and will welcome a 320-room Marriot hotel in 2016.

Take the tour from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 22, at 11 West Jefferson Street. The event is free to attend and open to adults only. Visit or for details.

Wed., April 22, 7:30-9:30 a.m., 2015
