Friendship Village Tempe

Tempe, AZ
Hospitality Influences Design to Attract Younger, More Active Residents

In 2023, Friendship Village Tempe’s six-phase masterplan continued with Phase 2, replacing an existing, outdated independent living building to appeal to the new generation of incoming residents. The addition provides the community with a five-story, 64-unit independent living building with a rooftop destination restaurant and brew house called Starfire.

Multiple entertainment features are incorporated throughout to create a lively social hub for the community. While the restaurant’s interior provides a serene environment, the patio is focused on entertainment, with an area for live music, yard games, and fire pits. Various lounge and table seating offer multiple options for relaxing and visiting with friends. Adding a new destination dining venue improves social engagement, a sense of community, and a luxurious style of living.

"If you really want to attract the boomers, you need to have something that doesn't feel old, and I think that's exactly what we're doing."
