Luxury living options in the East Valley are expanding by the hundreds with Mark-Taylor’s opening of its first high-end community in Gilbert, Ariz. The 296-unit San Privada , located in the acclaimed Spectrum neighborhood at Val Vista Drive and Pecos Road, offers an ideal living experience for established professionals as well as those looking to get a taste of the Gilbert lifestyle, one of the most coveted zip areas in America.
“Gilbert is home to a large number of young, educated employees with aspirations to move up the corporate ladder,” said Mark-Taylor Vice President Chris Brozina. “San Privada provides residents a high quality place to reside at a time where they might be more focused on their ascending career, and not necessarily ready for the commitment that comes with home ownership. Ultimately, the hope is that those future business leaders remain immersed in the Gilbert lifestyle and choose to make the town their permanent home and raise families there.”
San Privada’s core location provides residents with the ever-coveted “walkability” that allows pedestrians to utilize the town’s sidewalks and landscaped paths to access shopping, restaurants and employment. Being within blocks of the San Tan Mall and area retail, including Costco, Best Buy, Walmart, Harkin’s Theater and Dick’s Sporting Goods, underscores a convenient location unlike any other in the Valley.
The community is an example of “The Next Generation of Mark-Taylor,” a slogan the company uses to describe the evolution of apartment communities over the last two decades. In fact, the unit sizes will be among the largest ever built in the Valley. Additionally, San Privada’s features include those typically found in a modern, custom home, such as granite kitchen islands, custom wood cabinets, clean steel appliances, distressed plank flooring, oiled-bronze fixtures, pendant lighting and direct-access garages.
“To remain the first choice of quality renters, we’re constantly looking internally at what features we can improve, without becoming too trendy, but maintaining a timeless appeal,” said Brozina. “San Privada is the perfect example of that, with a fitness facility that is nearly 4,000 square feet in size and units that are among the largest in metro Phoenix. Those elements never go out of style and the residents appreciate the attention to lifestyle.”
Residents will also have access to a spinning studio, a cyber café with Mac and PC options, a social lounge, an outdoor cabana that includes a poolside kitchen, and the quintessential lagoon-style pool setting that has become a recognizable Mark-Taylor trademark over the years.
Rents range from $960 to $1800, with one, two and three-bedroom units now available to lease.
