Tempe, AZ (PressExposure) April 17, 2008 -- Lumina Tempe, a new contemporary mixed-use brand that combines fully serviced lifestyle residences, a modern boutique hotel and ultra-chic entertainment spaces, has caught the eye of Phoenix Suns Forward, AmarÃ© Stoudemire. Stoudemire has officially become a future Lumina Tempe Resident and is one of many busy professionals taking advantage of the unique 'lifestyle' concept the project offers.
With the boom of urban development in Arizona, Lumina has distinguished itself from the competition by focusing on servicing residents' daily needs versus providing just a 'place to live'--coining a phrase 'contemporary assisted living'.
Included in the project mix are 245 residences, a 220-room boutique hotel, multiple entertainment venues and a 20,000 square foot serviced pool deck. Lumina Tempe is truly bridging the gap between modern living and personal assistance.
"As a professional athlete, I've had the opportunity to see the best-of-the-best when it comes to real estate," says Stoudemire. "The Lumina Tempe development offers something that I have yet to come across--a modern, sleek and contemporary residence combined with first-rate services and conveniences at my fingertips. After a game or a long road trip, the thought of coming home to a fully-prepared meal, dropping off my laundry and ordering an in-room massage is unbeatable. When I'm looking for entertainment, the VIP access, bottle service and resident privileges in the lounge downstairs create the ultimate venue to enjoy with friends and family."
Residents and guests are treated to superlative amenities; including in-room dining and bar attendant, an on-site heath spa and salon, valet service and personal shoppers. And don't expect to see a check-in desk or a traditional lobby inside the front entrance--guests and residents begin their Lumina experience with a greeting from a 24-hour curbside host and enter into a state-of-the-art living room.
"The serviced lifestyle element coupled with the growing understanding of the Lumina brand, has created a very attractive real estate investment opportunity for professional athletes and influential business owners on a local and national level," explains Brian Sciutto, Director of Sales. "The personal service and incomparable offerings are undeniably appealing and have been the driving force in unit sale success."
Lumina sets an enticing scene in which to mingle, converse and re-connect as entertainment venues are more lounge than club, more of a backyard gathering than grand performance. Food and beverage is given a new twist as well--universal offerings are given a local spin and music is selected to enhance rather than drown conversation.
Residents of Lumina are the star of the show with signing privileges and service staff that know each by first name. With an eye for detail, design and modern architecture; Lumina Tempe realizes true hospitality shouldn't clamor for attention. In this unique space, it's simply given.
"We want everyone who steps foot in Lumina Tempe to genuinely feel the spirit and energy that flows within the development," explains Robert Watson, CEO of Constellation Hospitality Group. "We have designed Lumina to create a unique and truly integrated lifestyle for the community; a place that completely recreates traditional spaces and becomes a landmark destination that is consistently delivering innovative thinking, genuine hospitality and a rare integration of comfort and authenticity."
The anticipated project is literally steps away from Arizona State University, directly across from Sun Devil Stadium and adjacent to Arizona's first-ever Light Rail Interchange--a key location for all those seeking the ultimate place to live, play and stay.
Fused from Australian culture and American luxury lifestyle accommodation expertise, the entire Lumina team was founded on one ideal-- 're-imagining the spirit of hospitality'.
