The property features true Class A interior improvements, with historical timeless exterior architecture, great street frontage and immediate access to the downtown core, court houses, Arizona State Capitol Complex and government buildings.

The Kenilworth is currently used as a law firm office and is 100 percent occupied. Owner has their offices here and leases out individual offices to other professionals who want a great downtown Phoenix location on Roosevelt Row. All leases are month-to-month and the building will be 100 percent vacant at close of escrow. The property can be available for a buyer to occupy in as little as two months.

The Kenilworth was constructed in 1921, as The Kenilworth Apartments for winter visitors. It is one of the few remaining apartment buildings in Phoenix constructed after World War I, when war-time building restrictions were lifted

In 1981 the apartments were recreated into individual offices with common bathrooms and a small reception area. It was sold a number of times in the ‘80s and ‘90s, but remained as offices with few improvements.

Since purchasing The Kenilworth in 2004, ownership has restored the exterior to allow it to retain its architectural integrity. It remains a sterling example of Prairie School, as interpreted in the Southwest style.

Ownership has reinforced the structure and redesigned the interior to give the building a dramatic, open and warm feel. Ownership has maintained the original skylight, moved the staircase, reshaped offices, relocated the kitchen, added all new cabling and phone system and decorated in bold colors.
