Luxury retirement booms

Wealthy senior buyers in northeast Phoenix and Scottsdale will have a choice of four new communities:

• Arté, 170 units on nearly 5 acres at 114th Street and Via Linda.

• Maravilla Scottsdale, 410 units on 25 acres northeast of Scottsdale Road and Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard.

• Classic Residence at Silverstone, 270 units on 32 acres southeast of Scottsdale and Pinnacle Peak roads.

• Sagewood, 342 units on 85 acres at Mayo and Tatum boulevards.

All four feature contemporary interior designs that match the Valley’s upscale condominiums and dispel outdated perceptions of what retirement housing looks like.

All four communities are going after so-called go-go seniors, who play golf, tennis, hike and exercise regularly. Each also has a limited number of accommodations for “slow-go seniors” in assisted-living units.

Maravilla, Silverstone and Sagewood will also offer care for residents with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Silverstone will have 24 beds in a nursing center and Sagewood will have 32 beds.
