New Scottsdale Loft Projects, 3/02/06

There are a lot of edgy and/or architecturally interesting loft projects being presented to the City of Scottsdale for review or approval. Three of the more interesting or more recent ones include:

Granite Reef Circle Lofts located on Granite Reef in south Scottsdale will have twenty loft units within three three story buildings. Building one will contain four lofts, building two; six lofts, and building three; ten lofts. Each loft will be three stories tall with the attached two car garage on the first level and the living area and bedrooms located on the second and third floors. The floor plans include a 1669 square foot two bedroom (third bedroom optional) loft and an 1850 square foot three bedroom plus den loft model. Prices are yet to be announced.

Safari Drive River Walk (Phase 1) is a 97 unit loft style condo project in the heart of Scottsdale right on Scottsdale Road and just across the street from Scottsdale Fashion Square. Plans have been submitted to the City of Scottsdale and approved by the Scottsdale review board. There is a live/work component to these lofts as well as a straight retail component to the project. One of the unique features of the project is that it meets the City of Scottsdale definition for a green building. Prices and other details are yet to be announced.

Woodmere Condos is a loft style project located right off Scottsdale Road on Woodmere Fairway, very close to Scottsdale Fashion Square. This project has a total of twelve units of which five are a three story, brownstone style condo, while the other seven are two story loft style condos. Each condo will have an attached two car garage while the lofts will use a detached parking structure with assigned spots. The project will feature deep overhangs and steel shade hoods to keep the lofts cool in the summers while still allowing a lot of light. This project also meets some of the City of Scottsdale requirements for green building systems. The project has been approved by the City of Scottsdale Plan Review Board but no prices or other information is available at this time.
