This connection also extends to an architectural and cultural linkage with the Phoenix Art Museum and Burton Barr Library, both just 1000 feet away. While the street-level urban nature is clear, the building also includes a residence/art gallery on the top floor. This residential space serves as an additional work and entertaining environment for the owners.
