The first luxury multifamily project developed by Mark-Taylor in Pima County, the Villas at San Dorado, recently opened as part of a 24-acre mixed-use development that also includes a walkable shopping destination.
As previously reported in January, Scottsdale-based apartment developer Mark-Taylor Capital joined forces with commercial developer Kitchell Development for the construction of the 274-unit residential component. Kithchell is also responsible for development of the retail section.
The property is located at the southeast corner of First Avenue and Oracle Road and features eight floor plans with up to three bedrooms. The largest floor plan is 1560 square feet in size, and the average size is around 1,100 square feet, making the Villas at San Dorado the community with some of the most spacious apartments in Southern Arizona. It also features a state of the art 4,000-square-foot fitness facility that is unique in the area. Further amenities include a spinning studio, virtual personal trainers, a cyber café with Mac and PC options, and a Mark-Taylor trademark lagoon-style pool. Interiors of the rental units offer some exclusive additions such as kitchen islands, custom wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, distressed plank flooring, dual-vanity sinks and pendant lighting. Private garages also come with the apartments.
The central area includes a grassy, park-like civic space with a series of interconnected pathways and ramadas between the retail and residential developments as well as an area for farmers’ markets and other outdoor activities.
