Optima Inc. has announced plans to break ground on its latest Arizona residential development, Optima McDowell Mountain Village in the spring/summer of 2023. The $1 billion sustainable mixed-use community will feature six concrete-framed, eight-story buildings with 1,330 luxury residences and 36,000 square feet of commercial and retail space. The development will include a mix of condominiums and apartments for sale and for rent.
Optima McDowell Mountain Village aims to create an environmentally friendly residential neighborhood in North Scottsdale. It will feature state-of-the-art amenities and sustainable features such as the largest private rainwater harvesting system in the U.S., a vertical landscaping system, and active roof decks. The community will be built under the new International Energy Conservation Code and the International Green Construction Code. It is expected to include 75% open space with artificial turf, xeriscape landscaping, and native plants. Additionally, high-performance mechanical systems, solar panels, and 100% underground parking will help mitigate the heat-island effect.
The sophisticated architectural design of Optima McDowell Mountain Village will include undulating landscaped facades that echo the shapes of the McDowell Mountains. The buildings will feature complex elevations that step in and out, creating depth, shadow, and texture, as well as feature a vertical landscape system.
Williams Luxury Homes has sold hundreds of millions of dollars worth of Optima’s condos. At this time, we have created a presale interest list for the condos and apartments at Optima McDowell Mountain Village. At Williams Luxury Homes, we prioritize the best interests of our buyers and work to protect them from dual agency. In fact, did you know that working directly with a developer can work to your disadvantage? We look forward to helping buyers find their dream home (err condo) at Optima McDowell Mountain Village.
