HSL Construction Services, LLC has announced plans to develop Encantada at Rita Ranch, a luxury apartment community at the southeast corner of Valencia Road and Nexus Road in Tucson’s Rita Ranch.

The 312-unit complex, situated on 17.16 acres, will be the fifth Encantada development in Tucson. Additionally, HSL operates three Encantada communities in the Phoenix area, each boasting high-end details like granite countertops, upgraded lighting and flooring and high ceilings.

The complex will be a mix of two- to three-story buildings housing 117 studios, 117 two-bedroom and 78 three-bedroom units. Residents can enjoy a fully equipped fitness center, clubhouse and resort pool.

Located at 9300 E. Valencia Road, Encantada at Rita Ranch is in the heart of the master-planned community southeast of Tucson, with schools, shopping and hiking trails nearby. Encantada at Rita Ranch may attract military families from nearby Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

Late last month, the developer submitted a design development option request for the installation of 6- to 8-foot walls where the City of Tucson requires only 5-foot barriers. The interior perimeter walls would include a mixture of wrought iron fencing, masonry and vegetative screening.

“Taken together, we believe these measures will enhance the safety, aesthetics and maintenance of the project and its neighbors,” the developer said in the application.

A Design Review Board meeting was held February 1 to discuss the interior perimeter changes and a recommendation to the Planning and Development Services Director is pending.

Encantada at Rita Ranch residents also will have multiple access points to the complex, according to a traffic impact analysis. The site will have two new proposed full-access driveways on Valencia Road, both of which will be gated.
