Beth Duckett filed an article on AZCentral yesterday about some high-profile development projects coming to a neighborhood near you. I’ve covered them all in previous ScottsdaleTrails articles, but Beth’s writing provides a nice summary.
Also keep in mind that there are a LOT more of these in the pipeline.
Scottsdale development projects

Scottsdale is experiencing a surge of new development projects either planned or under construction.
Among the more high-profile are a $135 million Blue Sky apartments near Scottsdale Fashion Square and the Optima Sonoran Village condominium complex southeast of Camelback and 68th Street. Developers are hoping to construct a total of 5,700 apartment units in at least 18 projects citywide. Nearly two-thirds of the proposed units are downtown and along McDowell Road.
The Arizona Republic looks at several of the pending projects that made headlines in recent months:
Reata Ranch— Developer Taber Anderson wants to build up to 35 lodge units, 75 cabins, 120 casitas and 100 villas at the guest ranch, which could include stables and hiking and equestrian trails into the nearby McDowell Sonoran Preserve.
Optima Sonoran Village — Initial site work began last fall on the 10-acre property southeast of Camelback Road and 68th Street, with the first phase of 210 units expected to be finished by September 2013. The project primarily is a condominium development, with rental units available.
