GCON Putting Finishing Touches on the Award-Winning Town Deer Valley; Related Group's First AZ Job
GCON Inc., an Arizona-based, full-service construction management firm with a multi-state presence, is putting the finishing touches on a first-of-its-kind project in Arizona. Town Deer Valley, a 388-unit luxury multifamily development, is the first project in Arizona for the Related Group, one of the leading developers of luxury apartments, condominiums, and hospitality projects in the country.
Town Deer Valley is just the latest multifamily project in GCON’s portfolio, and one of the more unique projects the firm has completed. The luxury apartment community sits on a 20-acre site at 19th Ave. and Alameda Rd. in North Phoenix. It totals 442,000 square feet spread out among 19 buildings designed by Todd & Associates Architects.
Related Group has established a reputation for best-in-class, quality developments and GCON has delivered an award-winning product at Town Deer Valley. Already, the community has earned recognition at the 2023 CoStar Impact Awards. In the release about the awards, it was noted that, “the project's photogenic appeal and unstinting amenities caught the attention of the panel of local real estate experts tapped to be the judges, who chose Town Deer Valley as the best multifamily development for the Phoenix region.”
“The Town Deer Valley project started in the midst of the COVID pandemic. GCON worked tirelessly to help the owner navigate the realities of the broader market issues such as supply chain disruption, material cost inflation, regulatory constraints, subcontractor labor demands/insolvency, design flaws, and ‘on the fly’ design changes all within the context of a very compressed schedule,” said GCON President Mike Olinger. “As such, GCON is quite proud of how we’ve partnered with the Related Group to create a ‘Best-In-Class’ luxury apartment community that will serve the North Phoenix community as well continue to appreciate in value in the years to come.”
The community boasts a full amenity package that includes two resort-style pools and spas, water features spread throughout the community, private resident cabanas, golf putting green, pet spa, a children’s play structure and lush landscaping and open lawn areas.
The Resident Clubhouse is equipped with all the luxuries a resident could imagine, including a 24-hour sundry shop. Other features include a Venetian plaster fireplace, a poker/card room, an arts & crafts center, a conference room & co-working space, a full commercial kitchen and dining area for use by residents and a state-of-the-art fitness center with Peloton bikes, Mirror training units, a lawn for yoga and outdoor fitness equipment area.
The project is being delivered in five turnover phases, with GCON currently 80% complete with the overall development. The result is a world-class, award-winning luxury apartment community, much needed in the North Phoenix/Deer Valley submarket.
