New Luxury Residences at The Hacienda at the River

Imagine. Close your eyes and picture living amidst friends and neighbors in an intimate community that conjures up fresh experiences every day.

Swanky but not flashy. There is old world elegance at every touch point. It is also comfortable. Just a few steps from your front door is Tucson’s celebrated 12-mile Rillito River Park pathway, with its sense of open space.

The Hacienda at the River is creating 23 luxury apartments at its Catalina Foothills location, near St. Philips Plaza. It will be a place of engaged tranquility, a place where you will savor all the day brings.

Your health, your happiness and your life is our focus. With only 22 apartments, the concierge will know to have your pot of Earl Grey tea waiting for you when you come down to breakfast. This intimate community will offer a full dining service, centered on revolving menus that can cater exactly to each member’s tastes. Daily opportunities for discovery, creativity and connection in this hospitality-focused community will be extraordinary  – and designed to your individual preferences.

Please fill out this form to set up a personal appointment to learn more about this extraordinary opportunity to get in on the ground floor for this boutique senior living enclave.


Apartments range from 800-1,900 square feet, in one- and two-bedroom floor plans.  Some enjoy majestic views of the Catalina Mountains and others overlook the well-appointed courtyard. The design influence is Spanish revival style, a local favorite that concentrates on thick white walls under red tile roofs, balconies and patios for indoor/outdoor living, and generous spaces filled with light from abundant tall windows. Residences feature open floor plans, modern kitchens and environmentally friendly appliances with high fit and finish. Members will be able to pick from a few select design packages.


Two dining venues will offer a variety of delicious menu options in this intimate community setting. Acacia Restaurant will be a casual bistro, with indoor and outdoor seating, and Gallery Bar will be a fully stocked casual gathering spot just off the lobby. Acacia will also feature all-day gourmet grab-and-go items such as sandwiches, pastries, salads and hot beverages. An intimate indoor pool will host private training sessions including Watsu; if any member prefers a lap pool transportation to sister community The Hacienda at the Canyon is available. An on-site horse stable will feature equine therapeutic programming several times a week. A large covered garden invites members to garden, with established edibles and aromatics, as well as a number of Kino heritage trees and an array of cacti. A large central courtyard that the residences ring features lawns, a fountain, porches, a fireplace and many fruit-bearing citrus trees.

Health and Well-Being

The Hacienda is a place where a rich fabric of services and amenities is woven together with program offerings that encourage personal growth and community engagement. Opportunities for engagement might include cooking classes with members of Tucson’s vibrant food scene; classes and seminars with visiting integrative medicine practitioners; as well as regularly scheduled excursions to many of Tucson’s favorite spots to indulge in our city’s vibrant culture and arts scene. Members will have direct access to sister community The Hacienda at the Canyon and its TMCOne at the Canyon wellness clinic.
