Mark-Taylor Selected To Handle Leasing For New Luxury Community In Mesa, Ariz.

Aviva apartments to bring high-end, green living to suburbs

Mesa, Ariz. (October 16, 2017) – Housing Trust Group (HTG), a leading multifamily housing developer, has selected Mark-Taylor to handle lease-up and property management of Aviva – Mesa, Arizona’s newest luxury apartment community. The $63 million luxury community, which will welcome its first residents in January 2018, offers numerous attractive features and amenities including 9-foot ceilings, granite and quartz countertops, fireplaces, private balconies, and one of the largest pools in Arizona – a 150-foot resort-style oasis surrounded by Jacuzzis, ultra-modern cabanas and fire pits. Monthly rents at Aviva start at $1100.

“Mark-Taylor is an award-winning company that specializes in managing Class-A, luxury multifamily communities,” said Matthew Rieger, President and CEO of developer HTG. “We believe they are the best partner to realize our vision of creating a stylish, ‘green’ community with all of the luxury elements that urban professionals want.”

“There has been tremendous interest in Aviva already,” added John Carlson, Mark-Taylor Residential President. “Lifestyle is paramount for renters. They want a well-designed apartment, but they also want the sort of vibrant social scene, oriented around leisure and recreation, that you might expect in a high-end resort. Aviva introduces that kind of living experience to renters in the Phoenix metro area.” Mark-Taylor has received numerous phone calls and emails from interested parties as the waiting list begins to accumulate for the community.

Located at 8340 East Baseline Road, Aviva consists of 325 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartment homes. The first apartments will be delivered in January 2018, with final completion slated for June 2018. Apartments feature elegant, open, gourmet kitchens with granite and quartz countertops, ENERGY STAR® – rated appliances, 9-foot high ceilings, vaulted ceilings on upper floors, private master baths, sleek wide-plank flooring, modern dual glazed and high efficiency windows, energy smart lighting fixtures, oversized walk-in closets and expansive private terraces. All units are wired for high-speed internet and cable TV.

Resort-style amenities include one of the largest pools in Arizona; a 150-foot long outdoor infinity pool surrounded by ultra-chic cabana beds, multiple Jacuzzis, and a 120-inch video projection screen. A state-of-the-art-health and wellness center includes smart cardio machines, free weights, boxing, and a yoga/spin studio with a virtual trainer. The spectacular clubhouse also features a complete media and game room, lounge space and billiards. There are also outdoor exercise stations, fire pits for brisk desert nights, outdoor premium kitchen grills, a Ramada with smart technology, electric car charging stations, a playground with covered seating areas, a basketball court, and one of the largest residential dog parks in all of the state.

Aviva will be certified to the National Green Building Standard™ (NGBS), which provides practices for the design, construction, and certification of green multifamily residential buildings. Green elements include dual glazed/high efficiency windows; weather-sealed insulated doors; Energy Star® – rated appliances; low-VOC paints and adhesives; high efficiency showerheads and faucets; drought-tolerant native plants and low-water-use landscaping; low-energy-use lighting; and wide-plank flooring throughout. Aviva was designed by Phoenix-based Biltform Architecture Group and is being constructed by local general contractor Chasse Building Team.
