Sagewood Senior Living

Phoenix, AZ
Embracing Hospitality To Create A One-Of-A-Kind Senior Lifestyle

Sagewood is nestled within the Sonoran Desert and boasts impressive resort-style living. This project added a 4-story, 101-unit Independent Living building. The 278,000 SF building features luxurious apartments with den layouts and scenic patio views. In addition to expanding the living options, a multitude of amenities was added, including several activity and game rooms, an art studio, a café, formal dining, an indoor-outdoor tapas bar, a lounge, and an 18-hole championship golf putting course.

The community had a clear vision of creating a one-of-a-kind senior lifestyle by taking a strong hospitality approach. This is best showcased within the three new dining venues: The Sonoran, The Canyon Café, and The Owl’s Nest. Sagewood’s surrounding landscape inspired the design intent for each space. Each dining destination has a distinct brand and function, but all contribute to a restorative lifestyle.

“Sagewood is the Gold Standard for life care centers. The independent living is like living in a 5-star resort. There is a wide choice of homes that are well done and comfortable. All the amenities are outstanding, from the swimming pools, gym, dog park, ball parks and golf course. The dining facilities are truly enjoyable.”
