Alvernon Rail Center Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Alvernon Rail Center of the city of Tucson, Arizona, is the entry point for many of the raw materials used by the industries to develop the city and outlying areas. This hub is in the 85714 zip code, with an industrial patronage that flanks the rail yard on the north and south sides.
The borders of this neighborhood are Golf Links Way to the north, and the dry riverbed of the Santa Cruz River to the east. The buildings that face North Michigan Avenue hold the southern line at the back of the properties, and North Contractors Way closes off the west side. These large properties hold a great deal of oversized equipment.
This neighborhood is not all business. Both the Reid Park and Zoo and the Randolph Municipal Golf Course are to the north. The Davis Air Force Base is across the riverbed to the east. The Tucson International Airport lies to the south, and the Tucson Electric Park Stadiums sits to the west.
Tucson, as with many cities, faces the need for industrial zones that don’t disturb nearby residential neighborhoods. Alvernon Rail Center, occupying the area between the Tucson International Airport and the Air Force Base, is the perfect cradle for these types of heavy industry.
The Sun Tran Bus Line offers public transportation into the neighborhood with routes number 110-x, 201-x, 11, and 26.
