The border between North Tempe and South Scottsdale just got a little bit cooler with the addition of The Newport at Tempe, a new luxury home community by Newport Beach-based Risi Development.

The latest phase of The Newport shows its 38 new single-family homes that brings California beach house-style living to one of the Valley’s most up- and-coming new neighborhoods.

With close proximity to dining, nightlife, outdoor and recreational activities, The Newport at Tempe is the perfect environment for busy professionals who want to work, play and live in style. Just five minutes from Arizona State University, SkySong Center, Papago Park, Tempe Town Lake and the 101 and 202 Freeways, and just 10 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Downtown Scottsdale and The Newport at Tempe offers stylish and accessible living for buyers who want it all when it comes to lifestyle and convenience.

“The Newport at Tempe is the perfect representation of the new and exciting neighborhood that is developing right along the border of Scottsdale and Tempe,” said Joe Risi, founder of Risi Development, the builder of The Newport at Tempe. “We are surrounded by huge corporate growth centers including the $600M development of Tempe Town Lake and the Skysong Center which is quickly transforming the neighborhood into a hip destination where professionals want the best of Scottsdale and Tempe, without having to choose between the two,” he said.

Accessibility is another key feature of The Newport at Tempe and other communities taking shape in the area.

“Over the last few years, a great number of high end residential has sprouted along the 101 and 202 freeway interchange, and the area remains popular because of how it seamlessly connects Downtown to the East Valley cities, and both Scottsdale and Tempe are just minutes away,” said Keith Mishkin, broker with Cambridge Properties for The Newport at Tempe. “The Newport is the only new single family home community in Tempe that offers the essential accessibility buyers want along with an incredible level of luxury in this price range,” he said.

With an array of trendsetting fixtures and features, like sleek lighting packages with chandelier options, uniquely textured walls, quartz and granite countertops and unique porcelain tile standard in many areas, the Newport at Tempe offers four unique home designs ranging from 1600 to 1821 square-feet.

These artistically designed multi-story homes come in two plus den and three bedroom plans, each with an attached two-car garage, pet walk areas, community pool and outdoor living spaces, perfect for entertaining.

The eco-friendly homes are also all SRP gold-star certified, meaning they meet the highest standards for energy efficiency from SRP.

“Energy efficiency is a huge priority for many new home buyers,” said Keith Mishkin with Cambridge Properties. “With The Newport’s eco-friendly standards, homeowners can expect to save up to $200 per month, depending on their energy usage,” he said.

Pricing for The Newport at Tempe starts in the low $300s.
