SLR Phoenix Construction Breaks Ground on Tempe StreetLights Community

StreetLights Residential, a design-driven developer of multifamily and mixed-use communities, recently broke ground on The Alyssa, its newest luxury multifamily community in Tempe, Arizona. This is the fifth project in Arizona for StreetLights, and the second in Tempe, with the first luxury multifamily community, The Cameron, opening in 2019.

With 335 luxury apartment homes, the interiors and overall ambience give a nod to The Alyssa’s location, drawing from the southwestern setting with warm color tones, stonework, and brass fixtures throughout. The Alyssa will offer studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floorplans with an average unit size of 881 square feet. Interior schemes include granite and quartz countertops, island seating, custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, antique brass fixtures and two unit design schemes. Residents will have access to a variety of amenities including two pools with an attached spa, an outdoor lounge, a bar with direct access to the pool, coffee lounge, maker’s lounge, mail room, app-activated parcel lockers, dry-clean lockers, pet spa and park, and a fitness center with upscale equipment including Echelon bikes.


"The future of multifamily is community-focused and experience-based. We craft every community with top-tier amenities that foster engagement and create a sense of community, and The Alyssa is designed to do just that,” said Greg Nadeau, StreetLights senior vice president of development over Arizona and California. “We look forward to delivering our second project in the City of Tempe and continuing to build our presence in the Arizona market.”

The Alyssa is located along E Rio Salado Pkwy, just west of Arizona State Route 101. The community’s central location at the State Route 101 and 202 interchange provides excellent access to Tempe’s booming tech employment opportunities, downtown Phoenix, Sky Harbor Airport and Arizona State University. Residents will enjoy nearby access to Tempe’s 175+ miles of dedicated bike trails and over 1.2 million square feet of walkable retail at the adjacent Tempe Marketplace.


StreetLights Creative Studio will serve as the architect of record and is handling all interior design in-house. SLR Phoenix Construction, LLC, is the general contractor. Landscape design is by Norris Design.


Other StreetLights Arizona developments include The Ryan, a mixed-use, 332-unit luxury high-rise community located in downtown Phoenix; The Angela, a five-story residential community in Phoenix comprised of 253 apartment homes; The Tyler, a mixed-use, 320-unit community located at Agritopia in Gilbert; and, The Cameron, a four-story, 349-unit luxury residential community located in Tempe.
