HSL Properties Inc. has broken ground on its latest luxury apartment complex, the $46 million, 368-unit Encantada Living at Tucson National.
The apartment community, just west of the Omni Tucson National Resort at 8323 N. Shannon Road, is scheduled to open for leasing next summer and be completed by the fall of 2016, according to HSL, which is led by President Humberto Lopez.
The community will offer seven different floor plans including lofts and one-, two- and three- bedroom apartments. Pricing is expected to be similar to rents at Encantada at Dove Mountain and Steam Pump, which start at $999 per month for one-bedroom homes, HSL said.
Apartment features include granite-slab countertops, solid wood cabinets, smooth-top ranges, full-size laundries and 9-foot-plus ceilings. Community amenities will include a clubhouse, two resort pools with a large spa and private cabanas; a 24-hour fitness center; a 32-seat private movie theater; and a “dog ranch” off-leash pet exercise area.
As part of the project, North Shannon Road will be widened to five lanes north of Cortaro Road to Club Drive, and signals will be added at the Shannon Road and Club Drive intersection to improve traffic flow, HSL said.
Encantada at Tucson National joins three other similarly named luxury apartment communities that HSL has built in the area in the past few years.
The others are Encantada at Riverside Crossing, built in 2011 at 1925 W. River Road; Encantada at Dove Mountain at 4688 W. Tangerine Road, which opened in 2013; and Encantada at Steam Pump, which opened last summer at 11177 N. Oracle Road. HSL also has three Encantada-branded communities in the Phoenix area: in Goodyear, Peoria and Queen Creek.
Founded in 1975, HSL Properties owns and operates more than 10,000 apartment units in 42 apartment communities and is the largest apartment owner in Southern Arizona.
