Crown on 7th
Crown on 7th is currently home to Okra Cookhouse, Phoenix Ale Brewery Central Kitchen, The Root Salon, The Village Eye works, and Local Barber and Shop. Wildflower Bread Company will be opening its doors at the Crown in late summer/early fall with several other exciting announcments for the development just around the corner. In classic mid-century design, a central courtyard at Crown on 7th offers a lush garden sanctuary, providing a hideaway from bustling city life much like the tenants who share the space.
The Crown on 7th is located on 7th street, just south of Bethany Home Road. (Parking for Okra Cookhouse, Phoenix Ale Brewery Kitchen and Wildflower Bread Company is around back off of 7th Street and Palo Verde.)
For 52 years, the Crown on 7th building was home to Crown Imports, an eclectic retail store frequented by Phoenicians for silk flowers and event and party supplies.
Niels Kreipke is owner of Desert Viking, a real estate development firm with a history in adaptive reuse in downtown Chandler and downtown Phoenix. Since 1998, he has refurbished a half dozen buildings in historic downtown Chandler, as well as other properties across the Valley, including a condominium and retail complex in Phoenix’s Roosevelt District.
Buzz Gosnell, owner of DWG Phoenix, LLC left his previous job to focus on adaptive reuse development, of which Crown on 7th is the first venture in the new company. He was formerly president of Woodbine Southwest Corporation, which developed Kierland Commons, the successful main street shopping and dining district in northeast Phoenix. His goal now is to recreate buildings with character to make the surrounding areas better. You could say he had his eye on the Crown Imports building for years… he has a vivid childhood memory of boxing at Mack’s Boys Gym, which occupied one of the retail spaces years ago. And history becomes new again.
Crown on 7th exemplifies the power and possibility of adaptive reuse projects.
