Help us out a little . . . what are you needs and/or wants? How much do you plan to spend on rent? Are you looking for a big complex with lots of amenities or a more private place to live.

Also, where you will be employed, if at all, is important because commuting in Tucson can be a pain.

As for elevators . . . are you looking for a high-rise type building? If so, they are fairly rare in Tucson except for possibly downtown?

Good Luck

Redondo Tower in Downtown is one of the only apartment complexes I've seen in Tucson with an elevator. I lived there for several years. It was a great place to live at the time, and there was a waiting list to rent. I'm not sure if that's still the case or not.
One North Fifth also has an elevator, but the tenants tend to be more on the college/20-something side. It's also pretty loud with Congress Street right out your window. The new building they built next to there also certainly has an elevator, but I haven't been inside it and I'm not sure about how you qualify for tenancy there: MLK Flyer 2010 | The Official Website for the City of Tucson, Arizona

There's additionally a multi-story apartment building on Bellevue somewhere near Alvernon. I can't recall the specific cross street or the name of the place. They used to advertise quite a bit. It's very easy to spot as you drive down Speedway though as they paint it strange colors to stand out. That place would have an elevator.

Ice House Lofts have an elevator. I'd move there in a second if I didn't already have the homestead.

Thanks for the reply Bummer. I will not be working but will look for work in Tucson. I will be retiring but not ready for a retirement community (I think). I like to live on the top floor and since I do not use stairs (arthritis) the garden apartment style will not work out that well for me.

What is downtown Tucson like?

If you want a retirement apartment community, this one just went up and, since they're multi-storied buildings, I'm sure there are elevators. Good location and it looked very nice when they were building it. Villa Hermosa - 6300 East Speedway Boulevard, Tucson, AZ 85710

Why not just move into a downstairs apartment?

Thanks for the reply Vjsoto. Multiple reasons for living on top floor: 1) noise of people walking and dropping things above you, 2) view, 3) and a little safer from crime. Yes one can still get burglarized on the top floor but ground floor break ins are more common.

I can understand your points... I just think your not going to have any luck in Tucson with elevators, except in high-rise apartments (think downtown area). Most if not all apartments that are 3 stories or less will not have an elevator.
