Another big mixed-use project is headed for fast-developing North Scottsdale.
Though not as massive as some of the housing developments that have turned desert landscapes into upscale homes, the Grand Peaks project is anchored by a five-story, 280-unit apartment building.
Grand Peaks is on 3 acres at 7970 E. Henkel Way, just north of the Loop 101 off North Scottsdale Road.
Though hardly a small project, viewed on its own, Grand Peaks is dwarfed by the billion-dollar project featuring 1,330 luxury apartment and condo units a half-mile south of Grand Peaks.
On May 4, the Development Review Board unanimously – and enthusiastically – approved Optima McDowell Mountain Village. Two weeks later, the same board gave a unanimous green light to Grand Peaks.
