Located just northeast of downtown Phoenix, Sky Harbor offers 15 million square feet of office space. Although there are four office towers within Sky Harbor, only two rises above ten floors. The airport is composed of five terminals, each different offering services and amenities for travelers. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport can accommodate up to 44 million passengers annually across three runways. Sky Harbor’s location in central Arizona is one of the USA’s most convenient airports, with over 130 destinations served by more than 30 carriers. The airport was initially built in 1928 and has undergone three major expansion projects since then. After finishing her service as the US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice was named to the board of directors at Sky Harbor in 2014.
Sky Harbor is the airport of choice for sports fans traveling to Glendale, AZ. The airport is within minutes of University of Phoenix Stadium (home to the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals) and Jobing.com Arena (home of the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes). Sky Harbor added flights on game days during both stadium openings in 2006 and 2003, respectively. The airport has also served as an essential artery for moving teams around during championship events like the Super Bowl or MLB World Series. Sky Harbor offers hourly flights direct from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), less than two hours away by car for travelers looking to fly into town for something other than sports!
The Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort was built in 1969 as a Holiday Inn resort. It has since been remodeled into one of Arizona’s most luxurious boutique resorts under its original name, which it adopted in 2008. The hotel features 469 rooms spread across five floors, offering unique amenities such as a championship golf course, eleven restaurants and lounges, and a luxury spa. The resort also hosts meetings and conventions in several of its conference rooms and ballrooms.
The hotel is situated on the southeast corner of San Marcos Place and North Drinkwater Blvd., one block west of Route 79 and one and a half miles (2.4 km) southwest from the Loop 101 freeway off exit 36.
The hotel is designed contemporary, focusing on large windows that allow sunlight into many rooms. There are five floors, alongside four elevators. The ground floor features a lobby bar adjacent to the spa entrance and eleven meeting rooms spread out across almost 1/3 of the hotel’s total square footage. On each wing, there are two bars – one poolside bar for guests staying at other hotels or wishing to relax by one of San Marcos’ pools and another inside pool-facing lounge at the end of the hallways. As you pass their pool-facing entrances, it becomes clear why the hotel is now only four stories tall – the pool is at ground level. Guests can look down into it from their rooms or enter through one of three staircases, two on each wing, and a grand staircase near the bar off the lobby.
Phoenix’s most recognizable skyscraper, the Chase Tower, is home to JPMorgan Chase’s west coast operations. Completed in 1972, it stands at 623 feet tall with 47 floors above ground and three below ground. It is currently tied for the third tallest building in Phoenix and two other buildings within Sky Harbor Airport. Designed by architect Minoru Yamasaki who also created New York’s World Trade Center towers that were destroyed on September 11th, 2001, this monolithic high-rise contains 1.3 million square feet of office space, five levels of parking, an observation deck, a restaurant at the top and the Phoenix city offices among other tenants. JPMorgan Chase Tower is located at Sky Harbor Cir S, Phoenix, AZ 85034.
The foundation of the building was put in place to support a second tower that was never built. Upon completion, it became Arizona’s tallest skyscraper until the completion of Westward Ho in 1975. It is currently the fourth tallest, with nearby Chase Tower being an inch taller with 48 floors above ground and three below ground. The most noticeable feature of this building is its fins, which were designed with specific angles to deflect intense sun rays down onto streets below, thus saving energy costs for air conditioning inside the building. Its vertical fin is nearly 10 feet tall, giving rise to its nickname “Ten Foot Building.” The architect has stated there are not ten feet between each floor to create a dark alleyway from street level.
