7140 Optima Kierland in North Scottsdale is Now Registering, Virtual and In-Person Appointments Available
Award-winning real estate development firm, Optima, and joint venture partner, Principal Real Estate Investors, announced today that a new luxury apartment tower, 7140 Optima Kierland, is coming soon to Optima Kierland Center in North Scottsdale.
Registration is now open for the VIP Waitlist, which is set to launch in mid-June. Optima will offer both in-person appointments as well as virtual leasing opportunities, allowing prospective residents to secure an apartment in the new tower.
7140 Optima Kierland is the second apartment tower within Optima Kierland Apartments, the rental community at Optima Kierland Center. The development also has two condominium towers. Construction on the 12-story tower is well underway with the building topped off, windows in and power on. First move-ins are slated for August.
The first apartment tower, 7160 Optima Kierland, achieved the fastest leasing rate ever in the Valley with 134 move-ins occurring within its first three months of opening in May of 2017. The community has remained over 95 percent occupied since.
“With the demand we saw at 7160 Optima Kierland, we believe there is a larger market looking for the design and lifestyle we offer at Optima Kierland Center,” said David Hovey Jr., AIA, president and principal architect of Optima. “We look forward to offering the community another chance to live at Optima Kierland, featuring a distinct combination of space, style and design.”
The building debuted a new green design created by David Hovey Jr., Optima’s president and head architect. The architectural firm has already earned a reputation for its unique buildings that marry design with innovation and sustainability.
Both the rooftop and ground level feature luxury amenities. The 12th floor Sky Deck includes a cutting edge design that utilizes railings just beyond the skyline to create a negative-edge view, giving residents the sensation of floating above the city. The top floor Sky Deck also contains the state’s first rooftop running track, a heated lap pool, various seating areas and a spa complete with cold plunge pools, a steam room, a sauna and hydrotherapy capabilities. There is also an outdoor theater, indoor screening area, a fire pit area and an indoor/outdoor fitness studio. On the ground floor, residents enjoy an additional gym and spa, a covered dog park and dog wash, a game room, a catering room and more.
Sustainable elements include perforated panels on the facade along with sun-screening louvers to create textured shadows. During construction, builders used post-tension concrete and aluminum. A variety of energy-efficient and carbon-reducing design aspects, combined with water-conserving plumbing fixtures, give the building added eco-friendly elements. The building’s most impressive sustainable feature has to be the innovative vertical landscape system; built-in self-containing irrigation and drainage allow for vibrant, colorful plants that start at the edge of each floor and grow up and over the building.
The Phoenix condo market is among the most active in the country, prompting Polaris Pacific to call the city “the most resilient in the wake of COVID-19.” Sales activity at 7180 Optima Kierland in Phoenix illustrates the strong for-sale condo demand through the pandemic. The project averages 4.5 sales per month and is now 85% sold, making it one of the best selling condo projects on the West Coast.
Leading multifamily developer Optima announced today that the latest tower within its $500 million Optima Kierland development, 7180 Optima Kierland, has sold all 205 luxury condominiums.
Since sales for the tower began in January 2019, the community has been selling at a rate of 6.7 homes per month, almost identical to the absorption rate of Optima’s previous condominium development next door, 7120 Optima Kierland. Both Optima communities, totaling 425 residences, sold five times faster than other new condominium communities in the Phoenix-metro market.
“We are pleased with the response we’ve received at 7180 Optima Kierland from homebuyers both locally and across the country and we look forward to developing our next residential community in the Valley,” said David Hovey Jr., president, COO and principal architect of Optima.
Over the past two years, the Phoenix-metro market has been one of the highest performing and most resilient housing markets in the country, according to a recent report from Polaris Pacific, a prominent sales and marketing brokerage that tracks condominium market trends and represented Optima in the sale of Optima Kierland residences.
The 10-story tower is comprised of 216 residences including studio, one-, two-, three-bedroom and penthouse apartments, along with the development’s first Olympic-length pool and 24-hour concierge. The amenity-rich building has already been met with high demand, achieving 30% leased even before residents moved in.
“We are excited about opening the final building for Optima Kierland. We appreciate all of the support from the neighborhood, Councilman Jim Waring, the Phoenix City Council, the Planning Commission, and the City’s Planning and Building departments. We hope the community is proud of our project and what it brings to the local economy,” said David Hovey Jr., AIA, Optima’s president and COO. “The location will always be highly coveted, but what sets our developments apart has been our dedication to unique architecture, high-quality construction and providing the next evolution of amenities.”
As a further expansion to its already impressive lineup of unique amenity offerings, the final tower features a rooftop Sky Deck with a 50-meter Olympic-length lap pool, as well as a ¼ mile running track, spa and cold plunge, lounge seating, fire pits, outdoor bar and kitchen with TVs, and breathtaking views of the McDowell Mountains. Additional amenities include an indoor basketball court; an outdoor pickleball court; an expansive indoor/outdoor fitness center with state-of-the-art cardio and fitness equipment, free weights, yoga studio and Pilates studio; indoor golf simulator; sports lounge; and an outdoor putting and chipping area.
The apartments, which range from $2,600 to over $11,000 per month, are complete with high-quality designer materials and fixtures, soaring ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, gourmet kitchens, spa-quality bathrooms and the latest in smart home technology. Lush hanging gardens and expansive private exterior spaces bring the outdoors into perfect harmony with indoor living. 7190 Optima Kierland features exclusive offerings such as fire pits and grills on the terraces of the three-bedroom and corner two-bedroom residences.
Residents will have access to a 24-hour concierge as well as Optimized Service®, which offers complimentary white glove services within each resident’s home including in-home package delivery, grocery delivery and plant watering, available seven days a week. Additionally, residents will be able to utilize Optima Kierland’s 24/7 Virtual Personal Assistant. This virtual concierge is available by phone, email or text to provide customized assistance with reservations, travel, tickets, coordination and more.
Optima’s dedication to sustainability and innovation is reflected in Optima Kierland’s design with 9.5 acres of lushly landscaped courtyards that feature native, drought-resistant plants that help mitigate the heat island effect. Each residence features a private terrace with Optima’s signature vertical landscaping system that enables a palette of vibrantly colored plants to grow up and over the edge of the building, providing additional privacy while simultaneously filtering the air and lowering ambient temperature. Additional sustainable features include the efficient architectural shading system comprised of louvers and curved, perforated panels, as well as the advanced building materials utilized to maximize the tower’s longevity such as a post-tension concrete structure, aluminum sunscreens and louvers, and floor to ceiling windows.

This 12-story residential tower doesn’t just boast an impressive luxury highrise condominium design, but also an award-winning green building design. The luxurious 7180 Optima Kierland is located in one of North Scottsdale’s most desirable areas, with lavish amenities throughout and a vertical landscape system with self-containing irrigation. The building debuted a new green design created by David Hovey Jr., Optima’s president and head architect. The architectural firm has already earned a reputation for its unique buildings that marry design with innovation and sustainability.
Sales at 7180 Optima Kierland, the newest tower within the $500 million Optima Kierland development from leading multifamily developer Optima, reached 85% last month as it averages 4.5 sales per month since January 2020, making it among the top two fastest-selling luxury condominium developments on the West Coast. That average is approximately five times greater than the rest of the market, where a typical new condominium development averages only 0.89 sales per month.
“Of the eight West Coast condo markets we track, Phoenix has proven to be the most resilient in the wake of COVID-19 and 7180 Optima Kierland stands out as the fastest-selling condominium community in the state of Arizona,” says Paul Zeger, partner of Polaris Pacific, a leading sales and marketing brokerage that tracks condominium market trends. “Compared to other urban cores such as Los Angeles and San Francisco, the Phoenix-metro market stayed more active during the months of the pandemic. Therefore, the area’s growth can be seen more like a continuation of pre-COVID trends rather than merely a rebound from depressed spring and summer sales volumes that many other West Coast cities had to overcome.”
With only 32 residences remaining for sale priced from the $500,000s to more than $2 million, 7180 Optima Kierland is comprised of 202 one-, two- and three-bedroom homes, plus a collection of premium penthouses perched atop the highest floor that will be unveiled in March 2021.
The biggest draw for buyers has been the array of lavish amenities, both on the rooftop and the ground level. Set atop the 12th floor is the spectacular Sky Deck, which was designed with a negative-edge view, with the railings lowered just beyond the sightline, so the eye goes straight to the vistas beyond and gives the sensation of floating above the city. Among the development’s other amenities for fitness, relaxation and entertainment, its Sky Deck offers residents Arizona’s first residential rooftop running track.
Among the building’s most unmistakable features is it’s next-generation vertical landscape system, with self-containing irrigation and drainage that enables a palette of vibrantly colored plants at the edge of each floor to grow both up and over the building. 7180 Optima Kierland displays the next evolution of Optima’s award-winning, green-building design created by David Hovey Jr., AIA, president and principal architect of Optima.
