As the sixth largest city in the United States by population, Phoenix is the center for financial, commercial, cultural, entertainment and government activities in the State of Arizona. Phoenix is Arizona’s capital and the county seat of Maricopa County with more than 515 square miles. It offers more than 300 sun filled days a year, and an average temperature of 74.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Phoenix’s explosive growth began during World War II when military airfields were built in Maricopa County and many defense industries followed. The name Phoenix, legendary Egyptian symbol of rebirth, was chosen because the city was built on the ruins of the Hohokam Indian civilization.
The City of Phoenix defines Downtown as the area between 7th Street and 7th Avenue, from McDowell Road on the north to Buckeye Road on the south. However, the majority of downtown development is concentrated in the smaller area surrounding the intersection of Washington St. and Central Ave (which is the point of origin of Phoenix street addresses and numbering). Downtown Phoenix is one of a few major business districts in the city; others include Midtown Phoenix to the north, and the Biltmore District four miles northeast of downtown.
