The Arizona Republic recently reported that a Dallas based developer is proposing building 369 apartments in downtown Scottsdale, located immediately northwest of Optima Camelview Village, to be called Portales Apartments.
The plan had been to build 126 high rise condos, to be named Portales Place, on the site but that failed with the real estate bust.
Although I would have loved to have seen more condominiums in the area the market just won’t support them at this time. Given that, I’m all for increased density even if apartments. Couple Portales Apartments with approximately 700 apartments planned forBlue Sky Project, the vacant lot immediately west of Safari Drive, and we’re looking at approximately 1300 new residents to the area. I love it!
