Don’t get us wrong, we want to be your agent when your buying or selling, but that’s not always why you’re searching.

Saying goodbye to Los Arcos Methodist Church.

The Los Arcos Methodist Church in Scottsdale was not alwasy an architectural oddity in south Scottsdale.  In 1966 construction was finished on this midcentury modern church intended to be a “Church in the marketplace” referring to the nearby Los Arcos mall. (now skysong.)

It’s amazing to think about all of the modern architecture that exploded here in the valley in the 60’s, especially in places of worship. The website Modern Phoenix highlights many of these and more midcentury treasures the valley has to offer.

Sadly the days of Los Arcos are finished, and not in some esotric sense, it’s been demolished. Here are some photos of the demolition. (The congregation however is still alive and well.)

(Here it is with the windows missing.)

(Here showing the aftermath.)

(Almost mockingly, the sign has been left intact.)

Progress can be a good thing, but here in the west we are all too quick to scrap something and start over. Los Arcos may not have been had great attendance but it’s design speaks of a time not long ago, when Scottsdale was just beginning to find it’s voice. It was churches and buildings like Los Arcos that inspired people to think of Scottsdale as the modern city we know today. It’s worth taking a second to remember that without reminders of our past, we may loose sight of our future.


Woolworth Brownstone in NYC just listed for 90million.

You heard the right, 90,000,000. Sure the Woolworth mansion is 18000sqft and 7 stories tall but when you consider that the Chateau on Central Brownstones start at 1.5, you realize exactly how much location factors into price.

The Chateau on Central residences were designed with east coast style convenience in mind. When you see listings like the Woolworth mansion and really any other brownstone in New York you realize just how lucky we are to be able to have Brownstone luxury at Arizona prices.
