High-rise, sustainable living in Arizona has reached a whole new level this week with the opening of 7180 Optima Kierland, the 12-story residential tower that boasts meticulously designed condominiums, along with the most impressive and expansive luxury amenity offering in the state, all within North Scottsdale’s most desirable address.

With the opening of the building also comes the official debut of the next evolution of Optima’s award-winning, green-building design created by David Hovey, Jr., AIA, president and principal architect of Optima. 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.

As the building surpasses 70 percent sold and first homeowners begin moving in this month, one of the biggest draws 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 to feel as if it has 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. The Sky Deck offers residents Arizona’s first residential rooftop running track, a heated lap pool with built-in seating areas, spa and a cold-plunge pool; a steam room, sauna and hydrotherapy areas; an outdoor theater, fire pit seating areas, an indoor/outdoor yoga studio and a full kitchen and entertaining spaces with barbecues, covered bar and counter seating with large flat-screen TVs.
