Leon Capital Group, a Dallas-based investment company with a focus on real estate, has kicked off construction on Soltra at SanTan Village, a new Class A 380-unit multifamily community just north of SanTan Village, a super-regional lifestyle center in Gilbert. 

Located at the southwest corner of SanTan Village Parkway and Ray Road, Soltra at SanTan Village will encompass 14.25 acres with six three and four-story buildings. First units are expected to be available in early 2021. 

“We are very excited about breaking ground on Soltra at SanTan Village. The SanTan Village area is booming, and the Town of Gilbert is a great place to live, work and play. These apartment homes will be a short walk from the robust entertainment area,” said Carl Starry, Managing Director of Multifamily, Leon Capital Group. “We feel fortunate to have this multifamily project as the first of several communities we look forward to bringing to the Phoenix market.” 

With a variety of floor plans, Soltra at SanTan Village will offer best-in-class interior finishes, such as soaring 9 and 10-foot ceilings, urban mudrooms, smart locks, walk-in showers and soaking tubs, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, wood plank vinyl flooring and ample private garages.

Soltra at SanTan Village will have several entertainment-focused amenities, including a 1,900-square-foot third-story sky terrace with fully equipped chef’s kitchen, a private resident’s club and sports bar with kitchen and a multiscreen television wall, along with an oversized “bark park” with pet spa and grooming station. This is in addition to a two-tiered negative-edge resort pool with swim-up hospitality and entertainment area along with private poolside cabanas. The two-story fitness and wellness center will include Peloton bikes and a yoga room. There will also be a conference room and workstation, along with a Luxor parcel reception kiosk.

Residents will enjoy living in the heart of Gilbert’s shopping and entertainment corridor, including being walking distance to SanTan Village, a 500-acre, open-air development with 3 million square feet of upscale retail, restaurants, entertainment, office space, hotel and residential uses, as well as other entertainment options like Top Golf and Main Event.

The community will be built by McShane Construction Company. The design team includes Gary Todd and James Favata of Todd & Associates as architects, Ali Fakih of Sustainable Engineering Group as civil engineer, and Andy Baron and Colin Hanson of AndersonBaron as landscape architect. Brennan Ray of Birch & Cracchiolo served as zoning attorney, while Zach Pace with Phoenix Commercial Advisors brokered the deal.
