A picturesque neighborhood located just west of downtown Tucson, the Mercado District is an urban environment similar to those found in the great city centers throughout Europe and Latin America. Alley-accessed garages allow the homes to open onto cobbled plazas and walking streets. Wrought iron balconies, integral-color stucco, fountains, roof decks and interior courtyards lend a distinctive character to the residences.The custom residential lots are 70% built out but opportunities to become part of this flourishing community still remain.
Since breaking ground in the early 2000s the Mercado District has become a lively destination for residents and visitors alike. North of the residential area, the Mercado San Agustin hosts many of the City’s seasonal festivals and is home to bustling restaurants, open-air markets and locally owned retail shops.
To the south, Mission Gardens cultivates heirloom varieties of fruit trees and vegetables and holds weekly workshops celebrating Tucson’s agricultural and botanical heritage. At MSA Annex to the east, shops and cantinas occupy rusted steel shipping containers. The Sun Link street car connects the Mercado District to downtown, 4th Ave. and the University of Arizona.
The Mercado District has emerged as a vibrant cultural hub and a prestigious residential locale.
