Arrowhead Builders, a Native American-owned general contractor, recently broke ground near Scottsdale on the 43-acre Sierra Bloom Wellness Campus with plans next year to break ground on a 119-room Holiday Inn.

Sierra Bloom Wellness Campus will be built on Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community land at the Loop 101 and 90th Street in north Scottsdale, according to a press release.

The project comprises two phases of full site development. Groundbreaking in late October included $5 million in infrastructure for grading, roadways, streets, utilities, sewer, landscape, and signage.

The campus will feature a wide range of medical uses including behavioral health, assisted living/memory care, and multi-tenant medical office and retail.

“Having been a council member or president of the community for the past six years, the best part of development is that it allows the landowners to elevate their quality of life and to provide a much-needed service not only to the community but to neighbors as well,” said SRPMIC President Delbert W. Ray Sr., in a prepared statement. “I want to thank everyone who had a hand in this. It’s been a long time coming. Welcome to the Salt River; we really look forward to the grand opening.”

A prominent element of the mixed-use master plan, to be developed by the Monaco Group, LLC, will be a 78,577 square-foot, 119-key Holiday Inn scheduled to break ground in early 2019 and open in 2020, the press release stated.

The design of the hotel, 9090 E. Horseshoe Road, Scottsdale, will include cultural themes and designs consistent with community’s traditions and heritage.

Arrowhead Builders recently opened its office in Chandler on the Gila River Indian Community’s land. Arrowhead Builders features a growing staff, more than 50 percent of which is Native American. Its focus includes gaming, hospitality, healthcare, education, cultural/community projects, and multifamily housing.

“We are working with the Monaco Group to provide a unique approach to project delivery and integrated design by providing oversight of not only the construction and interiors but providing a full turn-key solution management of all the FFE and OSE for the client,” said Kari McCormick, vice president of client relations for Arrowhead Builders, in a prepared statement.

“I also have a unique tie to this project,” Ms. McCormick added. “My mother was an educator in the community. For us to get our first ‘larger’ project is really a full-circle experience for me.”

The owner’s representative is John Schoenauer of JS Development Services. The development representatives are Chuck Kennedy of Grosvenor Holdings and Ricky Lyons of Champion RD. Architect of record for the Holiday Inn will be Tony Tang and Eric Lai Architects.
