By Erika Schnitzer, Associate EditorPhoenix– Tempe, Ariz.-based Trillium Residential LLC has opened its 292-unit Trillium Cave Creek in Phoenix. Move-ins begin May 3.The garden-style apartment community features a food and wine theme and includes a Chef’s Demonstration Kitchen that will host guest chefs, as well as a custom temperature-controlled wine storage room for residents.“What we’re trying to do is create a community based around social activities. When you walk in, you see the kitchen that’s there for events, and the seating area is arranged around that,” David Dewar, principal for Trillium Residential tells MHN. “There’s a wine cellar where residents can create their own wine lockers. It’s a very social, entertaining type of atmosphere.”Trillium Cave Creek offers one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Prices range from $920 for a one-bedroom/one-bathroom unit to $1,495 for a three-bedroom/two bathroom unit.The target demographic for most of Trillium Residential’s properties is 18 to 35 year olds. However, a large percentage of residents at Cave Creek are renters-by-choice, explains Dewar.Amenities in each of the units include hard wood floors, black appliances, granite-looking countertops and raised panel cabinets and deeper sinks in the kitchens. The 9,115-sq.-ft. Great Room features an in-house spa, 23-seat cinema and wine lounge on the first level of the two-story building. Flat screen TVs are embedded in the mirrors of the private restrooms. Located on the second floor is the fitness center, which includes a yoga and Pilates studio, ballet bar and kickboxing station. An outdoor key-shaped pool is lined with umbrellas and two hard-topped Ramadas with entertainment space and stainless steel barbeques. Trillium Cave Creek is adjacent to Loop 101, connecting the Valley’s cities, SR-51 and I-17.
