Lumiere Chandler Condos
The Lumiere Chandler Condos are positioned just east of I-10 in Chandler, Arizona. While they’re attractive to anyone interested in living close to South Mountain Park and multiple local highways, they’re also ideal for students and faculty members traveling to the Arizona State University daily. Located just 10 miles from the southwestern corner of the Tempe campus, these condominiums allow you to travel to the edge of campus in about 15 minutes without traffic.
The easiest way to reach the ASU campus is to take I-10 West to University Drive. Turn right on University and drive a few blocks to enter campus from the western edge. Wells Fargo Arena, Packard Stadium, Sun Devil Stadium and other sports venues are located north of University while the academic and administrative buildings are to the south.
You can also reach the southern edge of campus by taking I-10 West to the South Rural Road exit. This road runs through campus, giving you access to the fitness complex and ASU Gammage on the southern border as well as the academic buildings. You can take Rural until it turns into Scottsdale Avenue, cross Tempe Town Lake and enjoy the Phoenix Zoo and marina north of campus.
If you can’t rely on private transportation to reach ASU, there are public buses ready to get you there within an hour. The most direct route is to catch a northbound bus on South Kyrene Road. You have to walk approximately 30 minutes to the bus stop near Kyrene and Ray Road, but the bus will take you to Mill Avenue, which runs along the western border of campus.
Another option is to catch a route 65 bus at the intersection of Warner Road and Priest Drive to reach the same stops on Mill. There are other bus routes covering most streets surrounding the Lumiere Chandler Condos, so you can reach most destinations throughout Tempe if you make the right bus connections.
The condo complex is located a short drive from South Mountain Park, but there are also several smaller parks within walking or biking distance. Families benefit from close proximity to Valley Christian High School, Kyrene De La Mariposa Elementary and Kyrene Aprende Middle. Young adults enjoy the bars located nearby while all residents benefit from a variety of restaurants located within walking or driving distance. The Maricopa Freeway is also minutes away for those commuting to work.
