W Phoenix

This fresh design approach demonstrates remarkable cost performance and will bring world class, contemporary architecture to downtown Phoenix. The massing and exterior skin design of the building produce significant cost advantages and simplify construction – essential to hotel operational success. Vertically stacking the condominium and hotel floors adjacent to, rather than over ballroom areas creates optimal structural efficiency. The design is enhanced by a unique cost effective patterned window wall and metal building skin optimized for solar orientation.
