Ideally located in downtown’s Farmer Arts District, the Residences on Farmer put you within walking distance of ASU, Mill Avenue/Downtown delights and Town Lake fun. You’re only a half-mile from the western edge of ASU and sites such as the College of Design; walking there takes less than 15 minutes. Bicycling to the same spot takes only three minutes using West 5th Street. If you need to get to other areas of campus, hop on ASU’s free campus-wide shuttles, FLASH Forward/FLASH Back. You can also catch one of the free neighborhood circulator shuttles, including the Orbit Mercury that runs along University Drive through campus.
There are dozens of other convenient public transportation options around town too. You can walk 11 minutes northwest to the Tempe Transportation Center, giving you access to bus routes and light rail trains that cover the entire region. If you don’t feel like walking that distance, go one block north to 5th and Forest to catch a free Orbit Venus bus to the transportation center. There, you can hop on bus Route 48 for an 11-minute ride to Tempe Marketplace shopping, board a light rail train to Sky Harbor Airport or walk next door to Sun Devil Stadium or Wells Fargo Arena.
There are plenty of things to see, do and experience near the Residences on Farmer. Of course, you have quick access to all of the activities, sporting events and recreation available on campus. You also are steps from downtown’s celebrated entertainment, including events at the Green at Hayden Flour Mill and live music at Culinary Dropout, Blasted Barley and Fat Tuesdays. You’re two blocks north of University Drive’s amenities, from Chili’s Grill and Bar to CVS Pharmacy. You’re five blocks from Mill Avenue shops and restaurants such as Starbucks, RA Sushi Bar and Harkins Theatre’s Valley Art cinema. Grocery shopping is easy with Tempe Farmers Market just two blocks away and Rollins Family Market nine blocks to the northwest.
