Scottsdale is experiencing a surge of new development projects either planned or under construction.

• Work begins on WestWorld upgrades

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

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.
