Each week, Jackalope Ranch brings you a free event, workshop, or you-name-it happening in Phoenix. Because sometimes the best things in life really are free. This week's freebie: Open House at Roosevelt Point.
Big things are happening at Roosevelt Row -- big, two-tower, 7- and 8-story, 326-unit things. Roosevelt Point, the future apartment complex located off Roosevelt Row between 3rd and 4th streets is making its debut open house this Tuesday from 6 to 9 p.m..
The living space catering to students attending the downtown campuses of Arizona State University and the University of Arizona isn't set to open till August but that isn't stopping joint-owners EdR and Concord Eastridge from giving future renters and retailers (the ground lobby will provide 7,500 square feet of retail space) a sneak preview of the building and its amenities (spoiler alert: they plan on having a tanning dome. Yes, a tanning dome.)
Roosevelt Point's first open house will offer free food, drink, entertainment, and all-night giveaways including a free iPad Mini. For more information visit Roosevelt Point online or check out the Open House Facebook Event.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
