Renters’ Guide to Estrella Village
Estrella might traditionally be at the heart of Phoenix’s manufacturing industry, but today’s urban village is undergoing its very own renaissance, marked by an abrupt population- (and subsequently, housing-) growth. The village lies directly to the west of Central City, while Maryvale sits above Estrella and Laveen and South Mountain below (cut off by Salt River which runs along Estrella’s southern border).
How far is Estrella from Downtown Phoenix?
Estrella Village is pretty wide, meaning the time it takes to get to Downtown Phoenix does vary. From Tolleson in the west, the drive will take around 30 minutes via Interstate 10, while from the eastern border you can be there in less than 5 minutes.

Living in Estrella, Phoenix
One of the main benefits to living in Estrella is that, because of its proximity to Central City, it’s well-served in terms of amenities.

With that said, one of the cons of living in Estrella is precisely the fact that the center is so industrial, and it’s only on the western and eastern edges that you get a more vibrant, suburban feel.
