Edward Robson, Chairman and Founder of Robson Communities, Inc. along with his son, Mark Robson, President of Robson Communities, Inc., and several members of the executive team, celebrated the initial beginning of the Canyon Club with a groundbreaking event for Quail Creek’s newest luxurious amenity on September 29th.
The multi-million dollar facility will be home to many activities at this luxurious 55+ community. The Canyon Club will showcase an indoor pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, game room, bistro with coffee/wine bar, multi-purpose room (e.g. social, ping pong, etc.), spa lounge, massage and locker rooms, and a barbershop. The vast outdoor space will include a resort-style pool with shade sails, a whirlpool, an event lawn, and a terrace with a BBQ and pizza oven.
Designed by two award-winning companies - SHJ Studio, Architect and KTI, Kimberly Timmons Interiors, and directed by Karri Kelly, Sr. Vice President of Residential & Commercial Design of Robson Communities, Inc., the Canyon Club’s estimated 36,000 square feet will embody the spirit of the Southern Arizona ranch lifestyle offered at Quail Creek through its architectural character and composition upon completion.
“It has always been our mission to design extraordinary communities with luxury resort-style amenities. We are excited to bring a heightened level of leisure and recreation to Quail Creek,” said Karri Kelly, Sr. Vice President of Residential & Commercial Design of Robson Communities, Inc. “The Canyon Club will be a stunning and inviting place for residents to socialize, exercise, dine, relax, and enjoy.”
Kelly said the design of Quail Creek’s newest amenity will take advantage of the beautiful setting with a desert wash to the west and majestic mountain views to the south. The design aesthetic will lend itself to a “Modern Ranch” by incorporating traditional gable and metal shed roofs, wood siding, natural stone, and smooth stucco. By intentionally rendering these finishes with a more contemporary style, the club will provide a relaxed and comfortable feel.
Interior design will keep the Canyon Club at Quail Creek feeling approachable and visually appealing. The Arizona landscape is the inspiration for the design palette within, while the use of large expanses of glass and movable walls will allow the surrounding, natural environment to permeate. The desert-inspired aesthetic will continue with a palette influenced by the native landscape. Warm earth tones will be complemented by sage blue and shades of sienna, while natural materials will be mixed throughout. Leather, copper metals, and natural woods will cultivate an ambiance that is both welcoming and fitting of the “Modern Ranch” form.
Time spent at Canyon Club will leave guests feeling rested, rejuvenated, and reconnected with the Southern Arizona backdrop.
Quail Creek is an active adult community located 25 miles south of Tucson at 1090 N. Eagle Hollow Rd in Green Valley, Arizona.
