No other community in Scottsdale offers the variety that can be found at Safari Drive. Mixing 215 live work lofts with residential condo flats and urban town homes in nine buildings on 4.86 acres in the heart of Downtown Scottsdale on the Scottsdale Canal, this project has something for everyone. Safari Drive residences feature the outstanding finishes and style you would expect to find in this premier location with floor plans ranging in size from 800-2400 sq ft.
Construction began in September 2005 and Phase I was expected to be completed in October 2006. Unfortunately, the slowing real estate market put some major brakes on the community so that Phase I still is not done. The name came from a 40 year old resort that had been on the site called The Safari designed by Al Beadle. In it's day it was one of THE places to hang out (especially late night when its restaurant, The Brown Derby, was packed).
The new Safari was designed by Miller Hull Partnership, a Seattle based architectural firm, on behalf of Scottsdale-based Vanguard City Home Developers. We may be wrong but we believe that the construction of these lofts were among the most expensive (if not THE most expensive) in the Valley at about $400 per square foot!
We love the great use of different buildings materials, rusted steel, exposed concrete, and tons of glass for a very sophisticated urban look. The floor plans are very open and flow well. Most residences have large private balconies and all have floor to ceiling windows offering much natural light and great views.
Community amenities are to include concierge services, a business center, art gardens, zen pool, active sun pool, play areas, a dog park as well as walking proximity to Scottsdale Fashion Square and all the great restaurants, bars, and clubs just south of Camelback Road.
