Liv Communities, a Michigan-based developer of numerous amenity-rich multifamily and senior living projects in the Valley, and The Rockefeller Group, a U.S. real estate developer, owner and operator, recently broke ground on a 360-unit, garden-style apartment community in Laveen, Arizona.

“We’re thrilled to have broken ground with our partners at Liv on our fifth development together,” said Daniel J. Moore, The Rockefeller Group’s President and CEO. “We’re excited to bring a Liv community to the Southwest Valley and look forward to welcoming residents to their new homes at Liv Laveen next year.”

Nestled up against South Mountain, Laveen offers residents an urban feel and numerous parks. Many families and young professionals make up the population of about 51,000.

Residents of the new community will have access to the South Mountain recreational area, Cesar Chavez Park, the Loop 202, and a 15-minute drive to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Laveen also is 30 minutes or less to most employment hubs in Metro Phoenix.

“We are beyond excited to have a presence in the friendly and centrally located town of Laveen,” said Heidi Arave, Vice President of Multifamily for Liv Communities. “The beautiful setting at the base of South Mountain and convenient access to every area of the Valley via the Loop 202 expansion are attracting a diverse population and numerous new businesses. We see the area as a future live-work-play mecca, perfect for renters who want convenience, comfort, and a vibrant lifestyle.”

Amenities will include a bark park, resident hub, game room, fitness center, volleyball and sport court. The community will feature smart home technology throughout, EV charging stations and valet trash service.

The design and construction team includes Clark Wayland, general contractor; Whitneybell Perry, Inc., architect of record; and Anderson Design, landscape architect.
