Luxury Condos 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.

Optima Camelview - Luxury Condos in Scottsdale, ArizonaThese 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.”

Residents find themselves in the heart of an exciting dining, shopping and entertainment district.

A newer entrant is Envy in the heart of downtown Scottsdale. Envy will feature 89 residences with outstanding details. Coupled with five-star amenities including a concierge, pool, lounge and more, Envy is generating a lot of interest.

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.
