The property will be the first residential component of Scottsdale Quarter, the 28-acre mixed-use development located on the southeast corner of Scottsdale Road and Greenway-Hayden Loop. All told, Scottsdale Quarter comprises 370,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and entertainment space and 203,000 square feet of office space.
Crescent Communities will develop the residential project along Greenway-Hayden Road on Scottsdale Quarter’s Northeast corner. The property will offer modern décor and such upscale amenities as an elevated resort-style pool and a two-story fitness center with views of McDowell Mountains. Construction is expected to begin in late 2013.
Located at 1925 S. Coronado Road, the $45 million project incorporates resort-style features including granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets, attached and detached private garages, and high-speed internet connections.
Other amenities at the 382-unit community include a 24-hour fitness center with club-quality equipment, an elevated spa area with a fireplace and flat-screen televisions, poolside cabanas, outdoor lounge areas, free Wi-Fi and a children’s playground area.
