Developer Belgravia Group has broken ground on its KTGY-designed Portico luxury condominiums in Phoenix’s Scottsdale suburb.

Located at 19355 N 73rd Way in the city’s North Scottsdale neighborhood, the four-story Portico will offer 112 residences, half of which are already sold. The unit mix will be made up of one- to four-bedroom condominiums ranging in size from 1,178 to 2,784 square feet.

Construction launched this month, with the project slated for completion in June 2025. A state-of-the-art fitness center will stand high on the list of common-area amenities. All residences feature sprawling outdoor terraces.

Portico’s architecture incorporates smooth stucco, solid and perforated metal panels, wood accents and applied steel sunshades. The property won Phoenix Agent Magazine’s Multi-Family Project of the Year Award at the publication’s 2023 Agent’s Choice Awards.

Urban typology

“The Portico project was specifically designed to fit within a niche between single-family residential communities and typical multifamily buildings in the Scottsdale marketplace,” Demetrios Stavrianos, KTGY executive director of architecture told Multi-Housing News.

“In collaboration with our client, Belgravia Group, we knew we wanted to produce a type of product that was more consistent with an urban typology than suburban. This created certain zoning challenges within the city of Scottsdale. But through the collective expertise of our team, the project received the support of the city of Scottsdale.”

The team faced the additional architectural challenge of ensuring the maximum number of residences within Portico will enjoy direct views of the McDowell Mountains. “We achieved this by laying out the buildings in three tiers east to west, with the first tier having unobstructed views, the second tier with partially unobstructed views and the third tier with oblique views,” Stavrianos said. Two months ago, a KTGY-designed luxury apartment community in the Orange County, Calif. city of Costa Mesa, was unveiled.
