Project Status Time Line
Construction on the highly anticipated Ritz-Carlton Resort has begun. A groundbreaking was held on February 21st to celebrate the Ritz-Carlton Paradise Valley site dedication. The perimeter wall surrounding the 100-plus acre site has been completed. Inside the wall, extensive grading of the site has begun. In the northwest corner, Shea Homes has begun construction on Azure, a Shea Signature community. Sixty-six homes combining modern and transitional architecture are planned. Model homes shall be available for viewing shortly.
Much more is to come from this development. The heart of the property will contain the 20-acre resort containing luxury casitas, a desert inspired spa, an incredibly 400 foot long pool, restaurants, and over 20,000 square feet of event space. Projected opening date is in 2019. When completed this master planned community will contain the 200 room Ritz-Carlton resort, over 100 single family homes, a mix of villas and town homes, and over 50,000 square feet of retail and restaurants.
