THE LUXURY CONDO MARKET IN SCOTTSDALE, PHOENIX CAREFREE AND TEMPE
In the last decade or so, Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale have seen the introduction and growth of large luxury condo developments offering outstanding amenities and a different way to enjoy desert living. Many notable developments have gone up in the new Scottsdale Waterfront area as well in the heart of the Biltmore corridor.
These luxury condo developments are perfect for local residents who want to downsize their larger homes or for seasonal visitors who want to “lock and leave” their Arizona homes. Besides the amenities onsite, many of these communities are walking distance from excellent restaurants, entertainment, shopping, cultural attractions and more.
While the list below is not exhaustive, here is a brief overview of some of the developments that are worth exploring.
Scottsdale Luxury Condo Developments
Downtown Scottsdale and the Scottsdale Waterfront area feature some spectacular developments. And, as the area has grown over time, there is plenty to do within walking distance to keep yourself entertained.
Optima Camelview is a collection of contemporary and visually-stunning mid-rise buildings featuring steel, glass and abundant plant life. It was designed by the award-winning architect David Hovey and has elevated condo living to a new level. It is located on Scottsdale Road just north of Camelback, adjacent to the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall. In addition to great amenities, Optima Camelview is home to an on-site dry cleaner, upscale dining and more. One of the restaurants of note is Posh, where you can sample “improvisational cuisine.”
If you are considering luxury condos a little further north, there are a couple of outstanding developments in North Scottsdale. The first is The Landmark at Kierland. The onsite amenities are best-in-class and The Landmark is within walking distance to all of the shopping, dining and nightlife at Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter. The second option at Kierland is the Kierland Plaza Lofts. Although they are not technically condos, these highly sought-after lofts should be included in this list.
An upcoming development of note is Optima Kierland. Currently under construction, this new 5+ acre development is in the heart of Kierland and across the street from Scottsdale Quarter. It will have a rooftop pool, large fitness center and excellent amenities. Down the road, we will be seeing some other new opportunities in the Scottsdale Quarter neighborhood as well.
