A passion project for Woodbine, Mountain Shadows is proof that persistence and good partners are essential. This resort’s timeline spanned a decade, with discussions to resurrect this mid-century resort starting in 2007 and plans coming to life in 2017.
Beyond serving as the developer and construction manager for the group-up, Woodbine led efforts to identify and close on the debt and equity capitalization elements—establishing funding for Mountain Shadows through family offices versus institutional lenders. Woodbine also linked arms with Scottsdale-based Westroc Hospitality, revered and renown for creating best-in-class destinations in the Valley of the Sun. Westroc currently manages operations, and Woodbine serves as the resort’s asset manager.
Mountain Shadows takes design cues from the surrounding desert and its earlier 1950s incarnation, which played a role in establishing Phoenix as the travel and tourism destination it is today. Seated at the base of Paradise Valley’s Camelback Mountain, the resort’s present-day setup exhibits style, class and service with lavish amenities including view-framed pools; a fully equipped fitness facility with aerial yoga, barre, Pilates and spin classes; a renovated 18-hole, par-3 golf course; upscale F&B offerings to thrill guests and locals; and a luxury residential component.
