Modus Development has proposed a unique 20-unit gated townhome project called Circle Lofts, to be located on Granite Reef Road south of McDowell in Scottsdale.
The 1.5-acre infill site’s three, three-story buildings would be comprised of a generally circular motif, a significant departure from most new residential developments in the Valley, which tend toward a more cubist aesthetic. A central amenity space occupies the project’s midpoint with a pool, spa, barbeque area and ramada.
Units will range from 1,500SF to 1,579SF of livable space. Six will be rectangular and 14 will be “wedge” units to accommodate the rounded design. Each unit will have a two-car garage, with wedge units also having two semi-carports. Six additional guest parking spaces will be provided on site. Floor plans call for two-bedroom, two-bath spaces with an available third bedroom option.
Building finishes will be stucco painted in two shades of grey and a medium tan. Accents include matte black aluminum window trim and dark grey steel fencing and railings.
Preliminary renderings featuring landscape elements show a variety of palm and other desert trees accented with lantana and red yucca.
