This 360-unit community is a walkable, semi-urban, stacked three-story product with a clean, contemporary aesthetic. The site includes expansive open areas with amenities and regional trail connections. Aiya is designed to be consistent with the community’s Neo-Traditional design to help formulate a sense of place and fit within the larger language of the community.
Inspired by the beauty of the Sonoran Desert and the elegant design of a resort spa, Aiya is a desert retreat that balances personal comforts with inviting social spaces. Small touches of natural elements and textures, like petrified wood and copper accents, highlight the impressive array of community amenities.
Environmental impact mitigation was taken during the design and construction of the project. Shade trees are used throughout the property and are strategically placed to help reduce the need for cooling. Roofing materials with a high SRI value were utilized, along with low-water usage landscape and onsite water retention in both above- and below-ground tanks. Aiya’s clubhouse offers a game room, lounges, kitchen, and a fitness studio. Waterfall and fire features around the pool transform the outdoor space into a desert oasis.
