A highly anticipated luxury condominium development dubbed the Portico community has commenced construction in Phoenix, Arizona. Recently Belgravia Group announced the groundbreaking of the residential community which will feature 112 homes. The Chicago award-winning real estate developer is working in collaboration with the KTGY architectural firm on the project.
The Portico community development is taking place at 19355 N 73rd Way in Phoenix’s Scottsdale suburb. According to the developer, the project’s location is mostly suburban. Therefore it conflicted with their plan to build a type of product that was more consistent with an urban typology.
Belgravia Group and KTGY faced some zoning challenges within the city of Scottsdale due to the conflict. But they eventually received the support of the city of Scottsdale through their collective expertise.
Design plans for the Portico community in Arizona
The developer ensured that the maximum number of residences within Portico will enjoy direct views of the McDowell Mountains. In order to achieve this architectural design, they spread out the buildings in three tiers from east to west.
KTGY’s director of architecture, Demetrios Stavrianos said the first tier will have unobstructed views, and second will have partially unobstructed views. While the third tier of buildings were designed with oblique views.
The Portico community will have 112 condominiums which will include a mix of one, two, three and four bedrooms. The homes will be spread across five-story buildings, with their sizes ranging from 1,178 to 2,784 square feet.
A state-of-the-art fitness center will be available on the property as well as other shared amenities. What’s more, all residences will also offer sprawling outdoor terraces.
Thus far, the architectural design for the Portico community has won Phoenix Agent Magazine’s Multi-Family Project of the Year Award. It will integrate smooth stucco, solid and perforated metal panels, along with wood accents and applied steel sunshades. The developer expects construction on the project to reach completion by June 2025.
