Optima Camelview Village

From the low $400,000’s to $2.7 million

If you want to live near the pulse of the city, consider Optima Camelview Village. Recently touted as “one of the top architectural achievements in Arizona” by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Optima is quickly completing its third and final phase. Located on Scottsdale Road at Highland Avenue, this urban dweller’s dream offers 700 plush condominiums (800 to 3,000 square feet). These six- and seven-story high-rises span 13 lush acres in the heart of Downtown Scottsdale, and their floor-to-ceiling windows provide dramatic panoramic views. Modern amenities include an enclosed dog park, an on-site dry cleaner, a business center and a health club. An eco-friendly salon and a hip restaurant, Posh, are planned.

Bonus: No need to putt across town. Practice your swing on Optima’s personal green. 602.840.2500, www.optimaweb.com.
