Business Real Estate Weekly by Rose Law Group

Scottsdale – A venture formed by Deco Communities LLC in Scottsdale (Rob Lyles, Patricia Watts, Dan Richards, principals) plans to develop a 8-story residential tower in Old Town Scottsdale that will have 90 for sale condominium units.

The cash transaction was negotiated through Dave Fogler, Steve Nicoluzakis and Don Arones of Cassidy Turley in Phoenix. The property is now occupied by a 4,397-square-foot building leased to The Lodge, a bar and restaurant in Old Town Scottsdale.
