General contractor hardison/downey is working on preliminary pricing on a residential community of 281 apartments on four stories to be located at 15333 N. Hayden Road near the Scottsdale Municipal Airport (AZBEX, Dec. 17, 2013).

The owner in Scottsdale, Sunrise Living Luxury, is also building a multifamily project in Chandler at Arizona Avenue and Chandler Heights, but that project is not as far along as the Scottsdale site. A general contractor has yet to be named in Chandler, although hardison/downey  likely will be the GC if the preliminary pricing is acceptable there as well, according to Bob Bussone, senior vice president of Sunrise Living Luxury, based in Houston and Palm Desert, CA.

At Sunrise Commons in Scottsdale, the architect is TCA Architects of Irvine, CA; civil engineer is Wood/Patel & Associates; the owner is Sunrise Hayden Apartments LLC; and Sunrise Living Luxury; the landscape architect is Studio Sprawl. The applicant is the DAVIS Experience. The GC is working on preliminary pricing and continue in that role throughout the project.

The site is an abandoned car dealership containing a dilapidated building and unkempt parking lot.

Church proposed near Sunrise Commons

The proposal is to redevelop the 11-acre site in two phases. The first phase, to be completed in two years, will include the residential building and parking structure, fire lane, main entry drive and improvements at Hayden Road.

Phase Two will include a church building and surface parking lot on the north side of the 55 decibel line at the airport (AZBEX, July 22, 2014).

The Scottsdale Development Review Board on Jan. 15 approved the site plan, landscape plan and building elevations for the residential portion of the project.

The city has yet to receive details of plans for a new building for Impact Church, to be built adjacent to Sunrise Commons. The church declined to give details about the new church building.

The apartments will include studios, one- and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 526 to 1,286 square feet. The developer foresees tenants to be students, entry-level professionals and families.

It is designed in the Western style of Mission Architecture, also known as Mission Revival.  The design, which includes a courtyard, has the building dressed with concrete stucco with a variety of light earth-tone colors.
