JLB Partners submitted their narrative for the project, called Scottsdale Marketplace, which will bring a mix of nearly 52KSF of retail, restaurant and entertainment with 301 luxury multifamily units.
The design will use up to the allowed 75-foot height to create a five-story residential community with an emphasis on walkability, amenities for residents, and commercial appeal.
“The proposed development will highlight Scottsdale Road as a Signature Corridor and provide design elements that cater to the pedestrian and provide an urban character through the use of building design, signage, connectivity, landscaping, open spaces, hardscape and lighting,” according to submitted documents.
The residential buildings will wrap around resident parking areas with units facing outward to orient residences to site amenities and link them to the rest of the property. The mixed-use component will include single- and two-story buildings to house restaurants, services, retail and entertainment uses.
Shaded patio spaces will connect the residential and commercial components to the central core of the development to create a sustainable, walk-friendly environment.
A lush tree-lined promenade will create visual impact at the entry to the commercial area along Scottsdale Road, while access for residents along Chauncey Lane will eventually connect the project to future development south and east of the site. A network of sidewalks will connect the frontages of residential and commercial areas.
With up to 35% (150KSF) of open space, including 22KSF of commercial common areas and 64KSF of residential shared gathering and shaded spaces, the project is designed to create a walkable urban character.
Resident outdoor amenities, including a pool, shaded cabanas and landscaping, will create a resort atmosphere. Several smaller courtyards will provide additional recreational opportunities.
No project timeline was provided. However, consideration of a Planned Shared Development (PSD) overlay for the project site, which was slated for City Council consideration on April 5, has been tabled until May.
