High-rise, sustainable living in Arizona has taken to a whole new level this week with the opening of 7180 Optima Kierland, the 12-story residential tower of thoughtfully designed condominiums, along with the most impressive and comprehensive luxury amenities in the state, all in North Scottsdales’ most desirable address.

The opening of the building also marks the official debut of the next evolution of Optimas’ award-winning green building design created by David Hovey, Jr., AIA, Optima’s president and chief architect. Optima is known for cutting-edge residential buildings that have been nationally and internationally recognized with over 50 prestigious awards for the company’s commitment to design, innovation and sustainability.

With the building sold over 70 percent and the first homeowners starting to move this month, one of the biggest draws for buyers is the array of opulent amenities, both rooftop and ground floor. Atop the 12th floor is the spectacular Sky Deck, which is designed to feel like it has a negative view, with the handrails lowered just past the line of sight, so the eye goes straight to the vistas beyond and gives the feeling of floating above the city. The Sky Deck offers residents Arizona’s first rooftop residential racecourse, a heated pool with built-in seating areas, a spa and a cold plunge pool; a steam room, sauna and hydrotherapy zones; an outdoor theater, seating areas with fire pits, an indoor / outdoor yoga studio and a full kitchen and fun areas with BBQs, an indoor bar and a counter with large flat screen TVs.
