Housing Trust Group has submitted plans for a 168-unit apartment development on 9.6 acres at the NEC of Baseline Road and the Loop 202 in Mesa.
The Aviva I development will offer 64 one bedroom, 96 two-bedroom and eight three-bedroom units ranging from 760-1,240SF. Units will be divided between three three-story and three two-story wood frame buildings.
As the centerpiece of the development there will be an approximately 8KSF clubhouse overlooking the site’s infinity pool. Other amenities will include a spa and fitness area, fire pit, outdoor kitchen and open space.
Building exteriors will feature a stucco finish, metal parapet caps, stone veneer accents and recessed windows in bronze colored frames. The color scheme will be a desert-friendly combination of greys and tans.
Landscaping will feature purple leaf plum, elm, acacia, palm and other trees, as well as an extensive mix of shrubbery including black dalea, bird of paradise, yucca, Indian hawthorn, hibiscus and honeysuckle.
Construction is expected to begin around mid-2016.
