I spent Thursday afternoon with a new client, looking at resale condos around downtown Scottsdale. All the while, he was talking about how much he loved the architecture of the new Safari Drive development, so I stopped by the sales offices later that afternoon, to get an update on sales prices and availability for him.
Safari Drive is a very contemporary mixed-use community, with work, live, and play, all part of the environment. Simple lines and striking architecture, coupled with amenities, set the development apart.
The interiors of the condos are very open, with lots of light, provided by floor to ceiling glass. Kitchens are large and integrated with the living areas. High end appliances. Beautiful bathrooms. Camelback views to the west.
When completed, just a few of the amenities will include three pools, spa and fitness center, market and on-site dining. The location is ideal for a urban lifestyle. Many additional restaurants are nearby. Fashion Square Mall just across the street. Scottsdale Waterfront and 5th Avenue shops are within easy walking distance. Recreational opportunities are nearby.
At this point, several of the residential building are complete. Both full and part-time residents are living in the community. Business are up and running. It is at the beginnings of being a uniquely, vibrant community.
Condos range in size about 1500 to 4,000 square feet, with1 to 4 bedrooms. Prices are currently in the the $500,000 to $1 million range.
The development’s web site has lots of information about the community and the concept. You can also view floor plans for currently available condos.
Access to Safari Drive is via Highland Avenue, east of Scottsdale Road. If you’d like a personal tour, just let me know.
