Project Overview

Optima Camelview Village is one of the most architecturally interesting properties in Scottsdale, Arizona, and is a mixed use facility including retail and office space, as well as 720 urban residential flats in 11 six and seven story terraced towers. Optima Camelview Village buildings’ most visible design feature is the extensive use of strategic landscaping to both create a “green” living environment and function as a “green roof” to absorb water and reduce solar gain.
