I on Turquoise Trail Map (One Block North of Turquoise Trail Line): Opened in 1929 in the center of downtown Tucson, the Pioneer Hotel (on Stone Avenue) catered to the social elite like Harold and Margaret Steinfeld. Owners of a large downtown department store called Steinfeld’s, they lived in a penthouse in the hotel. A disastrous fire severely damaged the building in December 1970, and the Steinfelds were among the 29 victims. The fire, in combination with new Tucson suburbs, hastened the decline of downtown Tucson. Today Tucson’s downtown is enjoying a revival with the help of the Rio Nuevo Multipurpose District, and the Business Improvement District which helps fund the Downtown Tucson Partnership.
