Best Multi-Family Project

Maravilla Scottsdale — Phase 1&2

Maravilla-ScottsdaleDeveloper: Senior Resource Group

Architect: Allen+Philp Architects/Interiors

Size: 640,000 SF

Location: 7325 E. Princess Blvd., Scottsdale

The architectural character of the Maravilla senior living facility balances traditional and contemporary with a variety of details for visual interest and luxury senior living. Amenities on the 25-acre site include an indoor pool and spa, arts and crafts facilities, on-site health staff, Internet lounges, fitness center, movie theater and a multi-purpose facility. The project adheres to energy efficiency with enclosure insulation, low-E insulated glass windows, infrastructure for future solar hot water at the indoor pool and spa and carbon monoxide sensor switch. Water consumption is constrained by the use of substantially drought-tolerant landscaping and low-flow plumbing. Dining at Maravilla is a culinary experience: the main restaurant offers varied room experiences, an exterior courtyard for dinning, a café, and casual dining at the clubhouse. Aside from the numerous amenities, the buildings on-site are designed to offer views of the McDowell Mountains and TPC Golf Course. Design of the facility offers unique courtyards for a variety of purposes and provides residents an array of amenities, walking opportunities and superb sights.
