According to a July 2019 market study by Polaris Pacific, the West Coast leader in multi-family real estate sales and marketing, new condominium developments in Phoenix-metro averaged 1.3 sales per month since January 2019. Since sales began at 7180 Optima Kierland in January 2019, there have been 90 homes sold at the rate of 13 per month. “The Valley’s housing market during the summer months is typically very stagnant, however we have been fortunate enough to have buyers, both locally and nationally, maintain strong interest in 7180 Optima Kierland,” said Optima President and Principal Architect David Hovey, Jr., AIA. “The three major draws for buyers have been the upscale amenities that surpass any other residential offering in the state; proximity just across Kierland Boulevard to world-class shopping, dining and entertainment; and the high level of customization that buyers can take advantage of.” Within Optima Kierland Center, the $500 million luxury residential community located in the desirable Kierland neighborhood, are four distinct residential towers each with completely separate and private amenities. Two of the towers offer for-sale condominiums and include 7120 Optima Kierland, the Valley’s fastest selling condominium community in recent years that sold out all 220 residences in March, and 7180 Optima Kierland, which is now selling and will be completed in 2020. Priced from the $500Ks to over $2 million, the 12-story 7180 Optima Kierland tower is comprised of 202 meticulously designed, one-, two- and three-bedroom homes, plus expansive penthouses. 7180 Optima Kierland provides buyers the unique freedom to combine and customize residences in order to create a truly bespoke dream home.
