The building is situated on a 4 acre hilltop site with a commanding view of the historic town of Ajo and the surrounding mountains. The 28,779 square foot building was constructed by Phelps Dodge (now Freeport McMoRan) in three phases from the 1940’s to 1960’s. Construction is primarily masonry with stucco exterior; footings and floors are poured concrete with reinforcement. The structure is in very good condition. The architecture is typical for the period with Spanish and Arabic influences. Building is ideal for a boutique hotel or a wellness spa. Others have suggested an assisted living facility or a training center for tech jobs in nearby Phoenix. About the town: Ajo is a relatively undiscovered gem among Arizona mining towns. It is located on State Highway 85 just a little more than an hour from Buckeye and the west side of metro Phoenix and about two hours from Tucson. The wonderful climate, unique desert environment and wide open spaces are factors which attract thousands of Canadian and European tourists to the area. Nearby Organ Pipe National Monument has become a popular destination and a significant source of business for Ajo.
