SCOTTSDALE, AZ (October 26, 2020)Revel Communities, a division of The Wolff Company representing a portfolio of vibrant independent living communities with best-in-class amenities and services, has officially launched pre-leasing for its forthcoming independent living community, Revel Scottsdale. Designed both from an architectural and cultural perspective to foster wellness through the Revel Living philosophy, Revel Scottsdale will serve to enhance the physical, social, intellectual and spiritual wellness of its residents while promoting healthy aging. Built in the vicinity of the future Paradise Valley Ritz Carlton and near Talking Stick Resort, Salt River Fields and the McCormick Ranch Golf Club, Revel Scottsdale offers easy access to some of Arizona’s most high-value amenities.

“We are thrilled to begin pre-leasing for Revel Scottsdale, our first Revel community in our headquarters’ backyard where we believe residents can truly experience freedom, express personal choice and live in a vibrant environment,” said Danette Opaczewski, Executive Vice President, Resident Experience and Chief Operating Officer, Revel Communities. “With Revel’s hospitality-minded approach to living and aging well, we offer ways for residents to live on their own terms, feel at home and be surrounded by a friendly and supportive staff.”

The property offers residents 157 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom cottages with 270-degree unobstructed views to the west, north and east of Camelback, Mummy, McDowell and the Superstition mountains. Revel Scottsdale will include courtyards and light-infused spaces throughout the property, as studies show that more daylight and biophilic design can increase happiness, and sensory experiences, such as a wide range of exercise and movement programs, art studio time and cooking demos to foster multi-sensory wellness. The new community will boast a variety of unique amenities including a full-service salon and spa, an outdoor swimming pool and splash pad, a fitness studio, a billiards room, a creative studio and more. Specializing in restaurant-quality dining, including healthy made-from-scratch recipes, Revel Scottsdale will host chef-driven dining experiences with innovative seasonal menus at Ovation, a modern-American restaurant, and The Social Club, a spirited pub offering modern full bar amenities and casual dining including fresh-baked pizzas.

The Revel Scottsdale pre-leasing office is located on-site at 8225 E Indian Bend Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85250. For the first time, Revel Communities has unveiled a fully furnished cottage home as part of its pre-leasing center.
