The Station on Central is a 414-unit “Class A” apartment complex just north of the northwest corner of Central Avenue and Indian School Road in Phoenix. The property’s seventeen 3-story residential buildings total 372,089 ft2 and were completed in 1999 on an 8.26 acre site. The property is individually metered for electricity and utilizes a Rationed Utility Billing System—or RUBS—for water, sewer and trash. RUBS is a system where utility costs are apportioned according to the square footage of the unit. The complex has 240 one bedroom units with three floor plans, 162 two bedroom units and twelve three bedroom units.
