4 New Choices in Upscale Apartment Living

The resurgent real estate market has created a tight supply of existing homes for sale in recent months, and builders are responding with a slew of new single-family home developments in North Phoenix. There are also several apartment complexes planned or under construction. Here are four new developments billed as “upscale apartments”—with a diverse range of styles and amenities—going up now in NoPho.

The Casitas at Tramonto

Vertical construction is well underway on this gated community on a 10.6-acre site across from Home Depot in the master-planned community of Tramonto. Snowdon Residential anticipates the first phase units will be ready for lease in late April, with full project completion by late 2018. Floorplans include one- and two-story units between 900 and 1,400 square feet. All will have individual entrances and private patios, and up to 30 percent will have private garages. The remainder get carport parking.

Community Amenities: clubhouse, resort-style pool with private cabanas, and a fitness center. Tenants will also have access to Tramonto’s existing amenities, which include two parks with playgrounds, basketball and tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, swimming pools and walking trails.
Location: Northeast corner of 33rd Lane and North Valley Parkway, Tramonto
