The 1931 Phoenix Title and Trust building originally accommodated a bank and retail shops at street level, with commercial offices on the upper floors. At the time of its construction it was the largest office building in the State of Arizona.
Adorned with decorative metal details, the lobby gives one the feeling of stepping into the 1920’s. Art deco details abound throughout this building from stamped doors to beautiful marble and terazzo floors.
The 1954 annex was almost entirely demolished in 2003 leaving only a portion facing Adams street still standing. During the 2004 renovations, an additional two stories were added to the top of the remaining annex.
A marketing campaign was initiated in August 2002, and a sales office in the building was opened offering 90 loft condominiums ranging in size from 700 to 1800 square feet. The building premiered on November 21, 2002, as the Orpheum Lofts, taking their name from the nearby Orpheum Theatre, though it was not completed until 2005. Josh Comfort of Lawrence Group Architects in Denver was the lead architect.
Though the actual renovations began in 2002, the majority of work commenced during the summer of 2004 when the building was gutted and new central cooling and heating was installed. Additionally, the lofts were framed, new plumbing and electrical was run and sidewalks along First Avenue and Adams Street were redone. Detail work included inlay tile work around the main entrance that showcased the name of the building; Orpheum Lofts. An open air courtyard and water feature were added on the 3rd-floor deck overlooking First Street. Other amenities include a pool, spa, and fitness center which are located in the basement. A penthouse with roof access occupies the entire eleventh floor. The first residents moved into the building in January 2005.
