Deco Communities has broken ground on its latest condominium project, Inspire Downtown Scottsdale, the company’s latest Scottsdale project that aims to link Downtown Scottsdale with the up-and-coming Sky Song corridor.  The $42 million dollar project will offer contemporary-styled residences starting at $299,000. At the grounbreaking ceremony for the project this week, Scottsdale Mayor W.J. “Jim” Lane commended the project and the developers for their unwavering commitment to building high quality and affordable housing designed to spur buyer investment in Scottsdale.

“Our philosophy is that ‘rent’ is a four letter word,” said Rob Lyles, partner with Deco Communities. “We strive to deliver housing that allows buyers to take ownership, not just in owning thier own home, but also in the community around them,” he said. “With Inspire Downtown Scottsdale, we are taking a phenomenal location that hasn’t seen new home construction in over 20 years and infusing life back into the neighborhood with new construction, new buyers and a new reinvigorated energy,” he said.

Located at 7300 E. Earll Drive, just east of Miller and Earll Rd., Inspire Downtown Scottsdale combines exceptional location with superior design and amenities, creating an urban sanctuary on the edge of vibrant Old Town Scottsdale, which has recently gained the ‘SoSco’ moniker. The community will include 97 stylish condominiums offering fresh and luxurious common areas, with state-of-the-art fitness facility, central courtyard, pool, spa and its very own Dog Park.


Drawing inspiration from everything from the sunrise atop Camelback Mountain, to Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, to local icons like Sandra Day O’Connor and Michael Crow, a cold Four Peaks beer enjoyed on a Friday in March at a Spring Training game, and even Charleen Badman’s braised leeks dish revered by Food & Wine Magazine, Inspire Downtown Scottdsale is about community.

At the $299,000 price point, Deco’s latest condominium development will compliment their other developments: the super-luxury Envy project under construction in the thumping heart of Scottsdale’s Entertainment District and its urban relative, the urban cool Edison Midtown project now underway in downtown’s Central Corridor.

Once again, Deco Communities has assembled a team of top talent to construct its latest project. Daniel Gehman of LA-based Harley Ellis Devereaux, an award-winning architecture firm whose credits include a collection of high-profile designs across the US leads the project’s design. Private Label, a Valley-based interior design firm specializing in cultivating lifestyle experiences through strategic design curates the interior and exterior spaces to combine bold, striking design with warmth and comfort.

With Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center, Scottsdale Stadium, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and the Old Town Scottsdale Farmer’s Market within walking distance, Inspire Downtown Scottsdale will appeal to homebuyers looking for the best the Scottsdale lifestyle has to offer including easy access to world-class sports and recreation, outstanding arts and entertainment, premier shopping, nationally-renowned restaurants and nightlife and key downtown services and amenities in the heart of the city’s walkable, bikeable grid.

Scottsdale Mayor W.J. “Jim” Lane, who was present for the groundbreaking ceremony this week spoke to the group commending the initiative Deco Communities is taking to make quality home ownership a possibility for anyone who wishes to own a home in Scottsdale. “We are thrilled developers like Deco Communities are choosing to invest in building Scottsdale neighborhoods, and we too strongly believe in not just home ownership, but community ownership for our residents,” he said.

The property will offer several floor plans ranging from approximately 800 square foot one-bedroom units up to a 2100 square foot two-bedroom, split-master with den. The property will offer state-of-the-art amenities including a sprawling courtyard pool and spa, health-club inspired fitness facilities, WI-FI common areas, City of Scottsdale recycling, bicycle storage, electric car charging stations and secured underground parking.

Designed to be stylish, luxurious, comfortable and low-mainenance, Inspire Downtown Scottsdale caters to a wide spectrum of the Scottsdale buyer market ranging from millenials and young professional homebuyers to vacation home buyers and retirees. Individual units will cater to the needs of today’s upscale buyer with homes designed to be as functional as they are fashionable with expansive split master plans, grand 10’ ceilings, open floor plans, gas appliances and modern finishes.

Inspire Downtown Scottsdale is expected to be completed in late 2016.
