Just as Axis Raintree, a three-story, 175KSF Class A office building, broke ground at 85th Street and Raintree Drive in Scottsdale, High Street Residential, the fully-owned residential subsidiary of Trammell Crow Company, has submitted plans to the city for a new multifamily residential development to be located right next door.
High Street Residential is requesting a minor General Plan Amendment from Airpark Mixed-Use to Airpark Mixed-Use – Residential on +/-3.4 acres at 8501 E Raintree Drive, as well as a rezoning of the entire +/-9.64-acre site – which includes the site for Axis Raintree – to Planned Airpark Core- Airpark Mixed Use Residential with Planned Shared District overlay and Planned Airpark Core-Airpark Mixed Use with Planned Shared District overlay.
The Raintree Drive Residential project is proposed as a 190-unit multifamily residential development comprised of a mix of 150 one-bedroom, 36 two-bedroom and four three-bedroom dwelling units. The units will range from 800 square feet to 1,400 square feet.
The building will be five stories with a building height of +/-69 feet and will wrap around a 5.5-level, internal, above-grade parking garage. A total of 276 parking spaces will be provided within the structure.
“The buildings have been designed to respond to the Sonoran Desert climate through the use of passive solar shading, inset/projected balconies, landscaping, recessed windows (south), articulation, material selection, textures, paint colors, scale and massing in balance with the surrounding community,” according to the project narrative submitted to the city. “The development proposal promotes a rich desert landscape palette in a contemporary theme that celebrates the unique character and quality of the Sonoran Desert while providing an attractive resort-like setting for the buildings.”
Amenities to be provided for the development include a fitness facility, lounge/amenity room with kitchen and conference area, pool & spa area with cabanas, seating areas, fire pit and barbeque.
With the addition of both the Raintree Drive Residential project and Axis Raintree, “The overall concept is to create a mixed-use residential and commercial synergy within close proximity to abundant retail and office services,” according to the project narrative.
There are currently no meetings scheduled with the City of Scottsdale.
