P.B. Bell, a leader in multi-family housing development, management and acquisitions, has added four properties to its growing management portfolio.  The additions expand P.B. Bell’s reach in the East Valley with properties in Gilbert, Tempe, Old Town Scottsdale and North Scottsdale.

“Our goal is to maximize the resident experience at every apartment community we manage, and we’re looking forward to leading the team of experienced professionals that extends P.B. Bell’s brand of superior customer service and efficiency at each of these four new communities in our management portfolio, ” Debbie Willis, P.B. Bell’s president and designated broker of property services, said.

Two properties developed by Trinsic Residential Group, a new client for P.B. Bell, offer luxury living near Arizona State University and in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale.  Aura on Broadway, a 187-unit community under development at 1245 E. Broadway Road in Tempe, will feature a range of floor plans from studio to three-bedroom apartments.  The community’s resort-style amenities and entertainment-oriented common areas include a bike repair shop, fire pits and outdoor kitchens.

Meanwhile, The Standard, under construction across the street from Hotel Valley Ho in Old Town Scottsdale, will share amenities with the luxury boutique hotel.  The three-story, 134-unit community will offer luxury living spaces accented by high-end interior features and complimented by resort-style common areas.

Two established communities through existing clients, Olive East in Gilbert and Morningside at Scottsdale Ranch in North Scottsdale, round out the additions.

Olive East, located at 65 E. Olive Ave. in Gilbert, is positioned within the Heritage District in Gilbert, a lively, reimagined stretch of downtown that includes marquee dining and nightlife.  The 120-unit community offers easy accessibility to the U.S. 60 freeway and is close to shopping and popular restaurants.

Morningside at Scottsdale Ranch, located at 10455 E. Via Linda in Scottsdale, offers a comfortable living experience near popular retail and dining with freeway accessibility.  Tonya Batson, named 2015 Apartment Manager of the Year by the Arizona Multihousing Association, will serve as manager for the 160-unit community.
