As Optima continues to outpace the Arizona luxury condominium market in sales velocity by 8 times the average, the Scottsdale-based developer announced today it has surpassed 55 percent sold at 7180 Optima Kierland and will debut an exclusive, highly curated collection of nine premium penthouses that are available for sale starting this week.
As the newest and most elevated high-rise condominium tower at the $500 million Optima Kierland Center, 7180 Optima Kierland has sold 113 homes since sales began in January 2019. The community leads the Phoenix-metro market for sales velocity when compared to other new condominium developments across the Valley, according to a December 2019 market study by Polaris Pacific.
Amidst the sales success, Optima is launching the McDowell Mountain Collection, which includes a limited selection of luxury penthouses priced from $1.1 million. Perched at the pinnacle of the 12-story tower, these penthouses offer unsurpassed views of the McDowell Mountains through the sweeping floor-to-ceiling glass walls, allowing for the ultimate indoor-and-outdoor living experience. Buyers have the option of choosing from nine homes with three distinct two- to three-bedroom floor plans ranging from approximately 1,461 to 1,509 square feet.
Poised among the most luxurious penthouses in Arizona, each McDowell Mountain Collection home features an expansive private terrace adorned with lush, hanging greenery – a signature of Optima’s award-winning design aesthetic – and upgraded finishes that can be hand-selected by the buyer including European Oak wood flooring and Gieffe Cucine cabinetry, polished granite countertops, tiled terraces, upgraded lighting, 10-foot ceilings and appliances from high-end brands like Bosch and Elicia. Hand-selected by the Optima design team, these coveted penthouse residences feature lavish design elements and breathtaking east-facing views of the McDowell Mountains for a truly one-of-a-kind living experience.
“With such strong buyer interest in the community, we knew we wanted to offer a collection of homes that feature a distinctive combination of space, design, and amenities,” said Optima President and Principal Architect David Hovey, Jr., AIA. “Inspired by the surrounding McDowell Mountains, these penthouse homes feature a selection of finishes designed to highlight the desert setting. We aim to set the bar for penthouse living here in Arizona.”
One of the strongest draws for buyers at 7180 Optima Kierland, aside from the stunning views, has been the array of world-class amenities that are unrivaled in the market. The amenities, designed to nourish an overall sense of well-being, include a rooftop Skydeck with Arizona’s first residential rooftop running track, a heated lap pool, a full outdoor bar and kitchen with entertaining spaces, indoor and outdoor theaters, a ~16,000 square-foot fitness center, a basketball/pickle ball and squash courts and much more.
