The P.B. Bell Companies, a leader in multifamily housing and real estate development and management, is celebrating the official grand opening of Almeria at Ocotillo, a luxury community in Chandler, Ariz. Grand opening festivities mark the completion of the community’s second and final phase, an accompaniment to Almeria’s first phase, which opened last spring.Located near Dobson and Queen Creek Roads, Almeria at Ocotillo features a total of 389 modern apartment homes in one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. The second phase added 194 apartment homes to the community.The resort-like Almeria community, nestled in the master-planned Ocotillo area in south Chandler, includes premium features in its units, such as large pantries, stainless steel and energy-efficient appliances, wood laminate flooring, wood blinds and granite and quartz countertops.Its addition to the upscale Ocotillo area comes as Chandler continues to see considerable job growth, and with that, an increasing need for housing to accommodate its expanding resident population.“Almeria was planned, designed and built in accordance with Chandler’s future growth initiatives in mind,” Chapin Bell, President of P.B. Bell, said. “The amenities and the overall living experience at Almeria all speak to luxury, right down to the details. It’s like living at a resort that’s close to work, shopping and anything else a person would want to do.”Located at 2471 W. Edgewater, Almeria at Ocotillo brings upscale relaxation and recreation to the doorsteps of its residents. Both parcels at Almeria have frontage on Ocotillo’s interconnected lakes and water features, with community common areas and units designed to take advantage of the lake views, waterfalls, picnic areas and a nearby 27-hole golf course designed by Ted Robinson.The community features a trio of resort-style swimming pools and a complementary splash pad for Almeria residents, as well as a pair of healing spas, and a premium workout facility complete with a spinning room, a yoga studio, strength and cardio equipment and on-demand fitness.In addition, the community’s pools feature cabanas and premium lounge chairs, while conversation seating surrounds outdoor firepits. Almeria’s agility park includes shade and seating, and an on-site dog spa provides residents an opportunity to primp their pets at home.
