La Petite Chateau Apartments
You’ll find the La Petite Chateau Apartments approximately eight miles from the eastern edge of the Arizona State University Campus in the town of Mesa. The community is located on East Broadway Road, and you can take South Stapley Drive north to University Drive for a 20-minute campus commute in light traffic. You will need additional time to travel across campus to your final destination.
If you’re heading to the southern edge of campus near the on-campus housing units, ASU Gammage and most academic and administrative buildings, go south on Stapley Drive and take US-60 West to the Rural Drive exit. Rural will take you through the center of campus and turns into Scottsdale once you cross East Rio Salado Parkway in north campus. Following Scottsdale will take you over Tempe Town Lake where you will find the marina and a variety of recreation areas.
While it takes less than a half hour to reach ASU by car, you can expect to spend an hour traveling if you take the Valley Metro bus or light rail. While it’s faster to ride the light rail, you have to walk nearly two miles to reach the closest station on Main Street.
While the bus may take a few minutes longer, the closest bus stop is just minutes away near the intersection of Broadway and Stapley. Take a westbound route 45 bus heading toward 19th Avenue until you reach the University Drive stop. You must transfer to a westbound bus on University to complete the trip into campus. There are multiple campus stops along University Drive, so you can get off at the stop closest to your final destination.
Using the bus and light rail systems, you can reach most places in Tempe and surrounding cities. You will just need to make transfers to reach most locations.
The La Petite Chateau Apartments are just two miles north of Superstition Freeway and are convenient to multiple public schools, including Longfellow Elementary, Robson Elementary, Lindbergh Elementary and Mesa High. Reed Skate Park is positioned less than half a mile to the east, and Ellsworth Park is approximately one mile to the northwest. There are many restaurants within close proximity of the apartments, including a pizza shop with an arcade room and a few friendly bars.
