Optima Sonoran Village is a mixed-use residential community in downtown Scottsdale. The project is situated on 10 acres and comprised of 5 buildings with 768 residences, 13,000 square feet of commercial space and 100% underground parking. Utilizing an articulated façade, innovative shading devices, sustainable systems and varied building materials, Optima Sonoran Village provides a dynamic setting in the harsh climate of the Sonoran Desert.

Design

The design detail of the exterior was crafted to mitigate the harsh aspects of the desert climate. Through perforated panels, louvers and a vertical landscaping system, residential units have both sun protection and privacy. The signature vertical landscape system with self-containing irrigation and drainage enables a varied palette of plants at every floor. Additionally, the project includes 6.1 acres of open space to mitigate heat island effect.

Optima Sonoran Village incorporates lushly landscaped open spaces, which are interconnected with the central courtyards allowing public pedestrian access along pathways into and through the development. Located on the boundary of the Downtown District, the pedestrian areas are designed to accommodate and encourage a visual and functional connection of the adjacent neighborhoods with the Camelback Corridor and Downtown Scottsdale.
