New Westin hotel, stores, restaurants and entertainment venues to repurpose factory outlet site.
Sedona Vista Village is transforming the faltering 90,000-square-foot Sedona Village Factory Outlets with a renovation and by adding Sedona’s first Westin hotel to anchor the newly purchased 9-acre development located on the world famous Red Rock Scenic Byway SR 179 in the Village of Oak Creek, known as the gateway to Sedona’s red rock country.
This fall the new owners of Sedona Vista Village will be demolishing a portion of the existing buildings on the north end of the property to make room for the hotel, Element by Westin. The three-story, 117-room hotel, which is scheduled to open in early 2019, will include a pool, workout room and conference room.
The guest rooms are designed as free flowing space, some with kitchenettes, that can be customized by guests to meet their needs. In addition, the hotel contributes to sustainability efforts through paper recycling bins in each room, recycled materials in carpets and low VOC (volatile organic compounds) interior paints.
Marty Aronson, head of Sedona Pine Tree Ventures LLC and part-time Sedona resident, purchased the property in February from Oak Creek Development, LLC. He recognized the potential of the factory outlet location, which is one of the first retail developments visitors pass along SR 179 when traveling from the I-17 to the Village of Oak Creek and Sedona.
“With Element by Westin and our planned renovations, we are bringing new life to Sedona Vista Village, making it highly attractive to tourists and locals alike, by offering a unique vacation, dining, shopping, and entertainment experience in a prime location,” said Aronson. “We’ve begun making design decisions, and soon residents will see first-hand the benefits of our investment and the site improvements.”
The three existing retail buildings on the remaining 50,000 square feet to the south will be renovated to compliment the aesthetic of the hotel and will be available for retail use. Current tenants, Verizon Famous Footwear, Tuesday Morning and Kitchen Collection will remain. All surrounding storefront space on the is available for lease.
