Optima Given Green Light for $1 Billion Scottsdale Mixed-Use Project

Optima Moving Forward on $1 Billion Scottsdale Mixed-Use Community

Optima has locked up all the needed approvals and will start work on its one billion dollar mixed-use community called Optima McDowell Mountain Village.

The project, located at Scottsdale Road and the Loop 101 Freeway will include six concrete-framed, eight-story buildings that will consist of 1,330 luxury residences and 36,000 square feet of commercial and retail space. The development will be a mix of condominiums and apartments.

Each of the six buildings will include a rooftop deck with an Olympic-length swimming pool; a sauna, spa, and cold plunge and a running track that will follow the perimeter of the roof. Indoor amenities consist of a fitness center and yoga studio that look out over the lushly landscaped courtyard; a sauna and steam room; a residents’ club with game room and theater; an indoor basketball and pickleball court; an outdoor pickleball arena; a golf simulator and an outdoor putting/chipping area.

Optima McDowell Mountain Village is putting an emphasis on sustainability, including rainwater harvesting and solar panels liberally scattered throughout the project.
