The property, to be called Aviara Flats, is located approximately 15-minutes from Downtown Phoenix and units will be available to households earning at or below 60 percent of the area median income. Aviara Flats will feature a number of community amenities including a gym, playground, clubroom, pool and theater. The project’s completion date is 2024.
