As a unique destination in a distinctive community, this 105 acre site includes over 60 acres of open space and dramatic views of Camelback Mountain and Mummy Mountain. The site abuts Scottsdale Blvd and straddles the border of the Towns of Paradise Valley and Scottsdale Arizona. The centerpiece of the project is a new 200 key Ritz-Carlton luxury resort and 94 branded resort villas. The Master Plan envisions the Ritz-Carlton Hotel becoming an integral part of the local community. While the main access to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel is via Lincoln Drive, the Hotel will also enjoy a connection via a walking Plaza to the Palmeraie Shopping Center to be constructed on the portion of the site within the City of Scottsdale.
The Master Plan envisions a variety of additional residential units for the site intended to provide for the different lifestyle needs of current and future Paradise Valley residents. It also recognizes the desirability of an appropriate transitional use for this part of the project by employing the principle of buffering density and massing in the various residential components as they recede from Scottsdale Road towards the existing residential areas of Paradise Valley.
The Palmeraie shopping center will offer world class designer boutiques and dining venues. A central Plaza with open air restaurants, outdoor cafes, boutiques and adaptive open spaces is envisioned as an entertainment draw for visitors, residents and hotel guests alike with special events. The hotel’s specialty restaurant will anchor the west end of the central square furthering the symbiotic relationship between the hotel and its community.
Along Indian Bend ground floor community oriented retail will meet the daily needs of residents of the proposed units for quality specialized food and services.
