The nexus between Downtown and Old Town is another railroad-era, middle-class neighborhood, the Downtown Neighborhoods area. While there are still examples of modern architecture, two- and three- story, solid houses of brick and stone are more prevalent. This area is known as the Fourth Ward; it began to decline in popularity as newer and more up-to-date homes were built on the mesa.

However, with the revitalization of Central Avenue, the sidewalks have been widened to accommodate pedestrian-scale street lighting, trees, benches and other street furniture, and fewer signs. With increased pedestrian activity and increased property values, the Downtown Neighborhoods area has again become a desirable place to live. The Desert Skyline Suites complex is testament to that fact; its lush gardens and comfortable apartments are quite attractive to the modern urban professional.

From here, Central Avenue heads northwest toward an intersection with Lomas Blvd. and the historic Old Town district.
