San Privada

Mark-Taylor, Inc. recently began construction on a 296-unit luxury rental community at Val Vista Drive and Pecos Road in the Spectrum neighborhood of Gilbert. The new San Privada, located at 1480 E. Pecos, will offer an unparalleled living option for residents looking to live in an urban, mixed-use area of the town.
“The commercial / employment area surrounding the San Tan Mall is a one-of-a-kind living environment in Gilbert,” said Mark-Taylor Vice President Chris Brozina. “The mixture of retail, entertainment attractions and top-flight residential options in such close proximity is mounting an urban core like very few others in the Phoenix metro.” San Privada will provide the ever-coveted
“walkability” element that will encourage residents to utilize the town’s sidewalks and landscaped paths to access shopping, restaurants and employment.
The community is an example of “The Next Generation of Mark-Taylor,” a slogan the company is using to describe the evolution of apartment communities over the last two decades. San Privada’s features include some you may only expect to see in a modern, custom home, such as: kitchen islands, custom wood cabinets, clean steel appliances, distressed wood plank flooring, oiled-bronze fixtures, pendant lighting and direct-access garages. The unit sizes at San Privada will be among the largest ever built in the metro area.
“With the features being offered at these ‘next-generation’ communities, it’s difficult to compare apartments today versus those built even 10 years ago,” said Brozina. “The interior finishes have clearly been taken to another level, but the amenities being offered to renters rival those of professional spas and gyms.”
San Privada will offer a fitness facility that includes virtual personal trainers and a spinning studio, a cyber café with Mac and PC options, a social lounge, an outdoor cabana that includes a poolside kitchen, and the quintessential lagoon-style pool setting that has become a recognizable Mark-Taylor trademark over the years.
Rents are anticipated to range from $900 to $1800. The community is expected to open for leasing in May 2014. BMO Harris Bank is providing the construction financing.
