SC at Silverleaf 1

$350M ‘green’ condominium project moves into Scottsdale

The Sterling Collection at Silverleaf, a “green” luxury condominium development, is set to launch sales in early November. The $350M development is one of the largest luxury residential projects in the Southwest.

 

Developed by Scottsdale-based Cypress Development Group, The Sterling Collection at Silverleaf will be the most luxurious condominium community to ever be developed and sold in Arizona as defined by its exclusive location, proposed LEED-certified building techniques, effortless ownership services, world-class amenities and distinctive finishes. The project is adjacent to Cypress’ Sterling at Silverleaf community of luxury, LEED-certified villas.

 

Priced from the low $1 million, the 213 condominiums will feature one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans, with options for an added den, and range in size from 1,600 to 3,400 square-feet. Several exclusive penthouses averaging 2,500 square-feet will grace the top floors. The exclusive collection of five, four-story private buildings will feature sustainable silver-level LEED new construction, state-of-the-art automated valet parking and private elevators that open directly into each home.

 

All condominium residences will feature top-of-the-line, custom finishes including Calcutta marble countertops in the kitchen, Pro-Series Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, natural stone and wood floors, custom cabinetry, ceilings exceeding 11 feet, LED lighting, expansive terraces, professionally designed walk-in closets with custom cabinetry, his and hers bathroom vanities and deep soaking tubs in the master bathroom. Each residence has a built-in iPad system that controls the home automation and security systems providing the ability to remotely control every element within the home such as audio, video, lighting, window coverings and security. Also unique to the community is the steel frame Type I construction, which is atypical for such low-density developments.

 

“We are thrilled to introduce The Sterling Collection at Silverleaf and to be the first and only development in Arizona to offer this level of exceptional, sustainable condominiums,” said Nathan Day, CEO of Cypress Development Group. “Our buyers are those who are truly looking for a lock and go lifestyle, while still having all of the features and amenities of a luxury home in one of the most prestigious golf communities in the country.”

 

Homeowners have access to a 7,000 square-foot Resident Lounge with a demonstration kitchen, private dining room, library, fireplace, flat screen TVs and a conference room.

 

Additionally, The Sterling Collection will be the first community on the West Coast to debut a robotic valet, which is an automated parking system. The innovative system uses omni-directional, battery-powered robots and a robotics guidance system to carry vehicles parked on self-supporting steel trays to and from storage spaces. At the touch of a button, homeowners can call-up their vehicle to arrive in minutes. The system uses robots and lifts to store and retrieve vehicles without the damage and privacy issues that come with valet drivers.

 

Owners also have access to the community’s Effortless Ownership program, which offers a wide array of hotel-like services including chauffeured car service, a dedicated on-site concierge, a 24-hour manned guard gate, regular hosted events in the Resident Lounge and pre-arrival services including grocery shopping, home cleaning and preparation.

 

Topping the list of amenities at The Sterling Collection, owners are extended a private invitation to one of the Southwest’s most elite, members-only country clubs, The Silverleaf Club. A 50,000-square-foot rural Mediterranean-style clubhouse and spa, The Silverleaf Club offers year-round events for club members and their guests. The beauty of this club is surpassed only by the wonders that await inside: a full menu of spa services, resort and lap pools, fully outfitted locker rooms and the best in fine and casual dining. And framing it all is a stunning Tom Weiskopf designed, 18-hole championship golf course 7,322 yards of emerald fairways, snow-white bunkers and spectacular views.

 

Cypress has hired a LEED consultant to oversee the project and is aspiring to silver-level LEED standards, implementing the same sustainable methods used in its villas at Sterling at Silverleaf. The villas made national headlines when it was named Arizona’s first and only single-family new construction project to be awarded gold-level certification by the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) and gold-level LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

 

A priority interest list is currently being developed with a sales gallery and model opening in early November. Construction will begin in the first quarter 2015 with anticipated move-in by early 2016. The Kor Group, well known for creating the Viceroy Hotel brand and developing one-of-a-kind lifestyles experiences that build lasting value for homeowners and local communities, is leading the sales and marketing of The Sterling Collection.

New Luxury Homes Break Ground at Sterling at Silverleaf

Cypress Development broke ground on the second phase of Sterling at Silverleaf, bringing 12 luxury estate villas priced from $2.2 million to the private golf community of Silverleaf.

The new $27.6 million second phase will be built to the same gold-level LEED certified standards as the sold-out first phase of 16 villas. Sterling at Silverleaf made national headlines in 2012 when it was named Arizona’s first and only single-family new construction project to be awarded gold-level certification by the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB), making the villas the greenest homes in Arizona. Just this month, the U.S. Green Building Council also awarded the project gold-level LEED certification

“We are changing the way our industry builds luxury homes and proving there is a way to create the ultimate in green, luxury living,” said Nathan Day, president of Cypress Development Group. “Demand has been high since we announced the second phase at Sterling because our product is so unique to the marketplace. This is about building smart, innovative homes that provide a real value for our buyers.”

Sterling’s estate villas offer three different floor plans of two-story homes ranging from 3,980 to 4,800 square feet with an attached cabana or casita with a private entrance. The three and four-bedroom villas come standard with top-of-the-line custom estate features such as Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, exotic stone countertops, natural stone and marble floors, custom cabinetry, custom hand-forged iron stair railing, 9’ ceilings in second story,  a full masonry fireplace, a private two or three-car garage, a game room with a mini bar, professionally designed walk-in closets, his and hers bathroom vanities, a Jacuzzi bathtub in the master bathroom and a climate controlled wine room.

Four iPads are installed throughout each villa that control the home automation and security systems providing the ability to remotely control every element within the home such as audio, video, lighting, window coverings, security and wine room temperature. Sterling at Silverleaf also developed a proprietary Eco-Mode App with Crestron, which dims the lighting in the home to 80 percent of full power levels, automatically saving 20 percent on the energy bill.

Scottsdale Companies Form Development Company

A new full-service development company, Cypress Development Group,  was announced today as the result of a merger between Scottsdale-based developer Sterling Collection Development Group (SCDG) and luxury home builder, Luster Custom Homes.

Longtime friends Nathan Day, president of SCDG, and Tanner Luster, president of Luster Custom Homes, decided to combine their companies and increase their staff in order to form Cypress Development Group that will specialize in high-end residential and commercial projects that combine progressive sustainable features with impeccable finishes.

The pair’s expertise lies in pioneering the most advanced construction techniques in order to bring new ideas, methods and best practices to the development industry with an uncompromising attention to detail. From concept to completion, Cypress will offer comprehensive development services including site selection and acquisition, development funding, strategic planning, project design, construction, green-building expertise and interior design.

“This is an exciting step and major growth opportunity for all of us,” said Nathan Day. “By partnering with Luster Custom Homes and creating a full-service development company, it allows us to critically think outside the box and streamline the development process. We can now manage the entire build process from concept to completion and do things quickly, efficiently and consistently.  We have the ability to explore innovative building process and test the efficiency, especially in the green building arena, and have full quality control under one roof.”

Cypress opened the doors to its new 4,000 square-foot office last week at Canyon Village in Scottsdale’s DC Ranch community. The new company also recently hired six employees, adding to the existing team of 12.

“We have worked with Sterling for several years now and have enormous respect for their reputation and team. Our greatest asset has always been our people and by coming together we have made a substantial increase in the quality of that asset,” said Tanner Luster. “There are great synergies between our teams, our services and our clients. Our two companies have a shared vision for innovation and success that will only be enhanced by coming together. It is a true reflection of our business philosophy, which is all about building smart, innovative products that provide real value for consumers and real estate professionals.”

Day and Luster began working together in 2011 on the first phase of Day’s development, Sterling at Silverleaf, in which Luster is the builder. Sterling is a luxury, custom-home community that sits on 12-acres within the gates of Silverleaf featuring a collection of 16 villas designed by world-renowned architect Bing Hu. The community made national headlines in 2012 when it was named Arizona’s first and only single-family new construction project to be awarded gold-level certification by the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB), making the villas the greenest homes in Arizona. Just this month, the US Green Building Council also awarded the project GOLD level LEED certification

Cypress Development Group’s first project will be phase two of Sterling, an additional 12 villas priced from $2.2 million, that will break ground later this month.
