At Liv Ahwatukee, it’s all about living actively, sustainably, and socially. Each part of our design focuses on promoting all of Liv Ahwatukee’s initiatives, with resort-style amenities for the luxury apartment homes.

Residents will find numerous ways to be active, green, and social just by taking a quick walk along the one mile jogging path that stretches throughout the community. If they start at the main entrance, or the “Hub”, they’ll find neighbors enjoying the gaming and media center or attending one of the many social events planned each month. Beyond the Hub residents are lounging at the large salt-water pool with a green living wall with vertical plantings as the backdrop. A group is making a delicious dinner at the outdoor barbeque station with vegetables from the community garden, while they’re closely watching the friendly game of sand volleyball at the nearby court. Children run around playing tag in the open green lawn as they wait for their hot dogs to be cooked. Walking farther along the jogging path, you can stop to utilize one of the many exercise stations to enhance your fitness experience. Then, you will come across the fully-enclosed Bark Park, where the four-legged residents are able to socialize, play, exercise with a game of fetch, and even get cleaned up at the pet washing station.

Green living is truly evolving and at Liv Ahwatukee residents can charge their electric cars at a designated car-charging station, or wash their vehicles in the community car wash center. The second salt water pool has a beach entry design with a large central island, with multiple shaded areas and another outdoor kitchen. Terraced seat walls and shade trees provide places to rest and relax. The playground area is buzzing with activity, from the large playground structures, sport court, community garden, and big multi-use area appropriate for all residents. IPA Partners truly believe in offering ways for their residents to live fuller lives, and we had the pleasure of helping design the outdoor spaces to reflect those values.
