Hines Announces New Wood-Framed, Horizontal Multifamily Project in Arizona

Enclave Point is firm’s first build-for-rent project in the United States

(SURPRISE, ARIZ.) – Hines, the international real estate firm, has entered into a joint venture agreement with a subsidiary of New York Life Insurance Company to develop the firm’s first build-for-rent project in the United States.

Encompassing 12.9 acres, Enclave Point is a single-story, build-for-rent multifamily project that will provide modern, wood-framed apartment-style homes in Surprise, Arizona, which is one of the fastest-growing submarkets outside of Phoenix. The community will offer a mix of standalone 2-bedroom/2-bathroom units and attached 1-bedroom/1-bathroom units. All units will come with stainless steel appliances, quartz/stone countertops, walk-in closets with wood-shelving, vinyl-wood plank floors, and smart home technology packages for an elegant and technologically advanced finish to all apartments. Additionally, each unit will have access to personal outdoor space with a yard and a built-in dog door. Amenities at Enclave Point will include a resort-style pool, adjacent clubhouse, co-working spaces, state-of-the-art fitness gym, and spacious dog park.

Surprise is the tenth-largest city in Arizona and has experienced significant population growth due to the increased commercial development along State Route 303. This has sparked significant interest from companies across a variety of industries to move their offices along this route and created a need for new housing options to accommodate the growth.

“Hines is proud to introduce its first build-for-rent project in the United States to give residents the benefits of single-family-style living and desirable amenities paired with the flexibility of renting,” said Jim Bulsiewicz, director at Hines. “We are excited to partner with the New York Life team on this and future developments.”

Chris Hunt, Senior Director for New York Life Investors commented: “Similar to what we saw with our Chandler Viridian development with Hines, Enclave Point is well-suited for the dynamic and fast-growing Surprise market and will offer a high-quality offering with an unparalleled amenity base for its tenants.”

Construction is projected to commence in the Q4 of 2022 and be completed in 2024.
