Haverly, Phoenix, Arizona
Toll Brothers, America's Luxury Home Builder
HORSHAM, Pa., Sept. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Toll Brothers, Inc. (NYSE: TOL) (www.TollBrothers.com), the nation’s leading builder of luxury homes, through its Toll Brothers Apartment Living® rental subsidiary, and real estate investment firm Canyon Partners Real Estate, have announced the formation of a new joint venture to develop Haverly, a 323-unit multifamily rental community in Phoenix, AZ. The joint venture has secured a $53.1 million construction loan from Washington Federal Bank, (WaFd Bank). The debt and equity financing were arranged by Toll Brothers’ in-house Finance Department. Toll Brothers Apartment Living will manage the development of Haverly.
Haverly is located on a 4.0-acre land site at Central Avenue and Thomas Road in the vibrant Midtown submarket of Phoenix. Adjacent to the Valley Metro rail stop, the community location offers convenient light rail access to Downtown, Sky Harbor Airport and Tempe. Phoenix has experienced robust economic expansion in recent years, benefitting from exceptionally strong job and population growth including nation leading net migration of over 77,000 people in 2019, and has proven resilient since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic with recovered job losses well exceeding the national average. Phoenix is home to numerous financial services, health care, startup, and technology companies. Fortune 500 employers in the market include Amazon, American Express, Avnet, FedEx, Freeport-McMoRan, GM, Honeywell, Insight Enterprises, Intel, PetSmart, OpenDoor, Republic Services, Wells Fargo, and ZipRecruiter.
Haverly will be a 5-story, midrise building wrapped around an eight-story parking structure with luxury amenities including a resort-style pool, rooftop deck, state-of-the-art fitness center, electric car charging stations, resident clubroom, dog park and pet spa, and community-wide WiFi. The community will offer 323 apartment homes with various floor plan styles across a mix of studio, one, and two-bedroom apartments. Residents will enjoy convenient access to restaurants, retail stores, and office space all within a 5-minute walk from the community.
Charles Elliott, President of Toll Brothers Apartment Living, said, “Toll Brothers Apartment Living is excited to build our second multifamily community in the Phoenix market. Our student housing community, Canvas, opened for leasing in August located near Arizona State University. Haverly will benefit from Toll Brothers’ established for-sale brand presence in Phoenix and a strong employment base that the market offers.”
Fred Cooper, Toll Brothers’ Senior Vice President, Finance and Investor Relations, stated: “We look forward to working again with Canyon Partners to develop our first market rate rental deal in Phoenix. We also are pleased to undertake our first deal with WaFd Bank, which is a leading lender in this market.”
“Toll Brothers has been building homes and developing for-sale communities in the metro Phoenix area for over twenty-five years. We are excited to have a prospective pipeline of future rental projects to complement our strong home building presence and a burgeoning single-family rental business in the area as well.”
Canyon Partners Real Estate has deployed over $900 million of debt and equity into multifamily projects, supporting the financing of $2.8 billion of assets over the last five years.
