Development partners Liv Communities and Rockefeller Group recently celebrated a ribbon-cutting event of their fourth collaborative multi-family community in the Valley in the past nine years.
Local dignitaries and project team members were on hand for the ceremony held at Liv Crossroads, 445 E. Germann Road in Gilbert, Arizona. Occupancy of the first buildings took place in April, with strong leasing activity driven by strong demand for the community-oriented development. Demand is so strong that the community is already 70 percent leased. Final completion of the community is expected in February 2022.
“It’s my privilege to thank what has turned into now, a real core team. We are a family, in a lot of ways,” said Liv Communities CEO Scott Brooks. “Rockefeller Group has helped us build the Liv presence here in the Valley. We rely on each other as partners. We have worked on several communities together. It’s been an incredible journey to build these relationships. Thanking each of these key folks is just the latest.”
When Liv Crossroads is complete, Liv Communities will have 900 rental homes in three communities in Gilbert that represent an investment of $150 million in the town, Brooks said.
Liv Crossroads features 356 units ranging in size from studios to three bedrooms. It comprises 19 buildings plus two amenity buildings that feature the office, resident Hub, co-working space and Liv Fit fitness center, all with 24-hour access to Liv residents.
Residents enjoy an over-sized heated resort-style pool and spa, on-site personal training and group fitness, indoor and outdoor community entertainment and recreation areas, and a “Bark Park” with pet-friendly social events.
Additional community amenities include rideshare pickup location, the “Mile Shy” Walking Trail, a community garden, a relaxing hammock garden, business center/conference room, outdoor fitness stations, package delivery lockers, a coffee bar, private garages, car care center, electric car charging stations and Wi-Fi in all amenity areas. Liv focuses on building genuine community where residents have the opportunity to live a more fulfilling life and build lasting friendships.
Apartment amenities include granite countertops, patio storage, internet access points throughout the home, plank flooring, private patio/balcony, private master baths, detached garages available to rent, stainless steel Energy Star appliances and Liv Smart home automation.
“Today is a celebration day; this Liv development is a joint venture we’re really proud to be a part of,” said Thomas Weeks, Executive Vice President and Head of Development for Rockefeller Group. “This is a great community and a great place to live. This is also a great place to work. Gilbert’s growth is proof positive of that.”
Whitneybell Perry is the architect of record and Clark Wayland is the general contractor. Notable subcontractors include Terrascape Consulting, RC Interiors and Anderson Landscape Design.
“The first time I toured a Liv community in Gilbert, I said to my husband, ‘Can we live in a Liv community?’” said Town of Gilbert Mayor Brigette Peterson. “I hope you have the best of luck in our community.”
