Built in a little less than a year, Loews Ventana Canyon is a 400,000-square-foot luxury resort constructed at the base of Tucson’s Santa Catalina Mountains. The resort has 398 rooms and suites, ballrooms, meeting rooms, five restaurants and lounges, a complete spa, separate fitness center, two 18-hole golf courses, two swimming pools, a racquet club and eight lighted tennis courts.
Construction was performed within a 15-foot preservation zone to maintain precious Sonoran Desert vegetation. Sundt received numerous awards for excellence on this project including the prestigious Build America Award, Concrete Excellence Award and Golden Nugget Award for best commercial retail project.
The resort is sculpted into the base of the mountains adjacent to an 80-foot natural waterfall. The site includes an artificial lake, preservation of desert plantings and formation of artificial rock.
