Commercial real estate has exploded in recent years, and some unique mixed-use developments have popped up around the Valley. Epicenter at Gilbert’s Agritopia is one of those developments and is an attractive residential and retail destination for residents across Agritopia and the East Valley. Walkable retail space features include common areas, benches, water features, and farm-related greenery and trees built in for rainwater runoff. The Epicenter incorporates a diverse blend of restaurants, beauty services, and specialty retailers on the lower level, and directly above it is a luxury apartment complex called The Tyler.
Tyler: Luxury Mansion
From the outside, The Tyler boasts a somewhat modern farm-style aesthetic that is characteristic of Agritopia. Inside The Tyler, you’ll find one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts with soaring 10-foot-tall ceilings, stone countertops, cleverly integrated space-saving shelving, Mudroom, rainfall shower, upgraded GE stainless steel appliances, dimmable decorative lighting, and two different design finish schemes. Some high-rise apartments have views of the Superstition and Santan Mountains. Regularly scheduled social events for residents add to The Tyler’s lifestyle. Epicenter’s retail and dining options are literally steps away, making The Tyler an even more convenient place to live. Lease is in progress.
