San Travesia Brings Spacious, Low-Density Apartment Living to Tempe/Scottsdale Corridor

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Dec 22, 2014) - At the center of the McDowell corridor revitalization is the newest high-end rental community in south Scottsdale, San Travesia, offering unparalleled luxury with wide-open and impeccably groomed common areas, extra-large living spaces, garages, and just minutes from both downtown Tempe and downtown Scottsdale. San Travesia -- adapted from the Spanish word "Travesia" meaning "crossroads" -- offers all the advantages of Mark-Taylor's "Next Generation" living in the largest low-density luxury apartment community in the area.

"We're so proud of this project, and of being part of the renaissance of this important area," said Mark-Taylor Residential President Dale Phillips. "This project really gives the area an unparalleled living option, with bigger, more expansive units and common-area amenities than any other community in the area, in fact bigger than any development in our portfolio," he said.

The 440 units at San Travesia bring Mark-Taylor luxury living to a unique infill development located in a popular commuting corridor, nearby the gateways of McDowell Road, the 202 and the 101 freeways. It is the only low-profile, contemporary rental community in the area -- an appealing feature with the abundance of outdoor recreational options right outside. The community is one of the first urban projects the company has developed in several years, offering enviable amenities:

  • Expansive living spaces and units that are among the largest in the area.

  • Open and inviting common areas thanks to a generous housing unit-to-acreage ratio, enabling resort-like features that fully leverage the Valley's year-round, temperate climate.

  • Internet connections 100 times faster than the average broadband connection via the new "G1GABLAST from Cox," offering lightning-fast downloads.

  • The Next Generation of Mark-Taylor features such as granite kitchen islands, custom wood cabinets, clean steel appliances, distressed plank flooring, oiled-bronze fixtures, pendant lighting and direct-access garages.

  • Spinning studio, a cyber café with Mac and PC options, a social lounge, an outdoor cabana that includes a poolside kitchen, and the quintessential lagoon-style pool setting that has become a recognizable Mark-Taylor trademark over the years.

Since beginning pre-leasing activities in the fall, the community has achieved xx percent occupancy, a number that Mark-Taylor attributes to the renewed interest in the Skysong corridor.

San Travesia combines the beauty of nature with active, elegant, resort-style living. The expansive space, proximity to the Skysong Innovation Center, ASU and upscale retail and entertainment, combined with the amenities and service that only a Mark-Taylor community provides, truly make San Travesia a one-of-a-kind living experience and an appealing option for both young professionals and cultured retirees.

Rents range from $1100 to $2800, with one, two and three-bedroom units now available to lease. For more information about San Travesia, visit the website at or call 480-477-9589.
