Mark-Taylor Expands Portfolio with 485 New East Valley Luxury Multifamily Units


PHOENIX, Arizona — Valley-based multifamily investment firm Mark-Taylor has expanded its luxury apartment portfolio by 485 new East Valley units with the acquisitions of Avant at Fashion Center in Chandler and Lakeside Drive in Tempe. Mark-Taylor will handle the management and leasing of both new communities.

“Mark-Taylor is thrilled to expand our portfolio with these signature communities adjacent to two of the valley’s most dynamic locations with premium shopping, dining and robust economic scenes,” noted John Carlson, president of Mark-Taylor Residential. “This is a significant opportunity for us to extend premium service and luxury housing to even more East Valley residents looking to call Mark-Taylor home.”

Avant at Fashion Center, a 335-unit multifamily luxury community in Chandler, is well-located in a thriving community. With some of the Valley’s top shopping, dining, nightlife, and proximity to Chandler’s vibrant tech corridor, this location provides a luxury oasis for its residents. Avant is two minutes from the second largest shopping destination in Phoenix with 185 stores, 20-plus restaurants and wide variety of entertainment found at Chandler Fashion Center mall. Chandler is also the innovation and technology hub of the southwest, meaning plenty of high-paying tech, healthcare and management positions for residents.

Inside the complex, Avant offers high-end finishes and hardwood floors, spacious gourmet kitchens with open studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans, stainless Energy Star appliances, optional walk-in closets, Sonos® sound systems, private garage, and 24-hour package concierge. The community also boasts a gorgeous outdoor resort-style pool, perks for pets, two-story fitness center and breathtaking demonstration kitchen.

Additionally, Mark-Taylor recently acquired Lakeside Drive, a 150-unit luxury multifamily community in Tempe near Tempe Town Lake.

“Lakeside Drive is in the midst of downtown Tempe, a thriving cosmopolitan area of talented professionals from all over the world and just blocks away from Arizona State University,” said Carlson. “Tempe has become a growing job hub for digital and emerging technology, plus numerous national employers have recently relocated their headquarters here, making Lakeside Drive an ideal location to live and work.”

Inside Lakeside Drive are elegant studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments, plus penthouse residences, each appointed with full gourmet kitchens, Energy Star appliances, granite countertops, and a premium technology package with smartphone resident access. Other amenities include pool deck with spa, private cabanas, outdoor entertainment pavilion, two-story state-of-the-art fitness center, exclusive rooftop lounge with panoramic views, as well as pet-friendly amenities.
