One of the most talked-about areas here on LUXE BLOG is Scottsdale Airpark. Whether it’s Kierland, Silverleaf, the Scottsdale Road & Loop 101 Corridor, the One Scottsdale masterplan by DMB, or the Mayo Corridor, we’re always pointing out its growth. Last week, on November 13th, Scottsdale City Council approved The Parque in a 5-2 vote. This is a big deal. The Parque is the type of project we’ve been wanting to get built. A true technological hub.
The Scottsdale City Council’s decision to rezone the 32.29-acre site for The Parque signifies the city’s commitment to innovation. The entire area around Scottsdale Airpark continues to evolve.
So, The Parque is like this futuristic version of Central Park. It’s all about making a space that fits how we live now – working from home, needing green spaces, and all that.
The team behind The Parque includes some of the most visionary minds in the industry. George Kurtz, a notable figure in cybersecurity, leads the project. Known as one of the richest individuals in Arizona, Mr. Kurtz aims to build a sustainable and impactful development.
The Parque is envisioned to be a mixed-use development that blends residential living with commercial opportunities. It aims to become a technological and lifestyle hub. It’s also closely located to other major developments like Optima McDowell Mountain Village and the One Scottsdale masterplan by DMB.
There are ALL KINDS of big developments happening around Scottsdale Airpark.
While the project has received widespread support for its potential to establish Scottsdale as a tech hub and provide housing, some residents have expressed concerns about traffic congestion and the impact on scenic views. This happens with any project of this magnitude.
Central Park is the heart of The Parque. It’s this idea that you can have skyscrapers but still have room to breathe and enjoy nature. It’s about keeping the city feel but not forgetting the trees and grass.
The buildings here? They’re made to make sense for us, the people walking around. They’re not just there to look fancy. They’re part of the whole experience of being in The Parque.
Combined with Portico, FENDI, Optima Kierland, ICON, Ascent at The Phoenician, and Optima McDowell Mountain Village, you quickly see that Scottsdale has many world-class condo project being built. Speaking of being built, developer George Kurtz plans on breaking ground as soon as possible. There is much money behind this project. And we’re excited to see the land of which it will sit get what it deserves. We are talking about a PRIME LOCATION here. This entire area is absolutely perfect for this.
