– Luxury Condos in Scottsdale and Phoenix –
A relatively recent addition to Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale has been the introduction of large luxury condo developments offering top-of-the-line amenities and a new way to enjoy desert living. The most 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 locals who want to downsize their larger homes or for seasonal visitors who want to “lock and leave” their Arizona homes. While the list below is not exhaustive, here is a brief overview of some of the developments that have caught my attention.
Downtown Scottsdale and the Scottsdale Waterfront feature some spectacular developments. And, with the growth of the area, 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.
Another major project of note is the Scottsdale Waterfront Residences. Overlooking the waterfront and in the heart of the new dining, shopping and entertainment district, these luxury condos are right in the middle of all of the action and the views are fabulous.
The Landmark at Kierland in North Scottsdale is another outstanding luxury community. 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.
In the Biltmore Corridor (around 24th Street and Camelback Road), there are several luxury condo developments that have been attracting buyers from all over. Some of the more notable communities include: The Residences at 2211 Camelback, Optima Biltmore (sister property to Optima Camelview) and Esplanade Place.
Not to be excluded, Tempe also has three luxury condo communities that are centered around the developing Tempe Town Lake area. These communities are Northshore at Tempe Town Lake, Edgewater at Hayden Ferry and Bridgeview at Hayden Ferry.
