Pierson Place Historic District boundaries are roughly Camelback Road and the Grand Canal, Central and 7th Avenues, Phoenix, Arizona. The Light Rail wraps around this fantastically located historic district as does the Melrose District on 7th.

Pierson Place has a lot to offer that many other districts do not. You’re surrounded by the Metro Light Rail on one side, Melrose on 7th on the other, and tons of restaurants, shopping, coffee houses that are ALL in walking distance. Being basically sandwiched between both Central Avenue and 7th Avenue is a good thing!

The building materials used are also a cool varietyh. A house may be made of brick or block or wood frame or Adobe as there are 7 adobes in this neighborhood. Additionally, The original mix of these different dwelling styles give Pierson Place Historic District a unique personality that feels more urban-city-like than most of our historic districts. To that original mix, sprinkle in some multi-unit rentals built during the 1950’s and 1960’s, and the very first high-rise living in the city at the 17-story Landmark Towers on Central.

The architectural styles and square footage in this neighborhood is what I call a mish-mosh of a historic district, but in a good way. Early neighborhood styles include Bungalows and a number of different Period Revivals. English Cottages, Pueblo Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, and Southwest Style houses are all found within the neighborhood. 

Most of the buildings in the proposed Pierson Place Historic District are single family houses. However, A range of architectural styles reflects several decades of build-out. Early modern designs, including an Art Modern house and several International Style houses are also found in Pierson Place. In the late 1930’s and 1940’s, and the early 1950’s, the district continued to build out with modern Ranch Styles. The Transitional Ranch, French Provincial, Early, and Simply Ranch sub styles are well represented in the neighborhood. Fifteen-percent of the properties in Pierson Place are multifamily complexes, comprised of collections of detached single family buildings, duplexes, triplexes, and four-plexes (quads).  The original footprint of the single-family homes tend to be small, often less than 1,000 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, or, up to 3 bedrooms.

If you like Pierson Place, you’ll probably like Woodlea and Yaple Park Historic Districts.
