Arizona National Guard (“The Armory”)

A relic of the Cold-war era, the National Guard Armory building was constructed in the early ‘60’s just west of downtown Phoenix.  The roughly 38,000 sqft building housed everything from a drill hall and rifle range to a library and “chow hall,” while the roughly 5-acre site parked military vehicles and equipment.  When the Department of Emergency and Military Affairs decided to sell the property, Withey Morris assisted the buyer (Northwood Properties) in obtained appropriate and flexible land use entitlements for the properties rehabilitation into creative spaces for artists and skilled craftworkers.  Future plans include the possible development of live/work artist units on the remainder of the site.  The project includes a Historic Preservation Overlay on the original Armory building, further helping to preserve this piece of Arizona history.
