Generally, Scottsdale has been better insulated to market events/changes over time compared to other Valley cities. Scottsdale is a community that is no longer sprawling compared to other valley communities, and is now cycling to a redevelopment phase with multi-family housing being the strongest market. The multi-family developments in Scottsdale provide housing that satisfies contemporary preferences for unit finishes and community amenities in desirable locations.
Scottsdale was recently ranked among the top cities in the nation to lead an active lifestyle. Residents enjoy neighborhoods which straddle the Indian Bend Wash, a flood-control greenbelt and recreational jewel. It includes a 17-mile stretch of off-the-street multiuse paths, parks, a skate park, disc golf, community gardens and other amenities. Just to the west, Camelback Mountain and Echo Canyon Park offer some of the Valley’s most popular hiking trails, not to mention breathtaking views. To the south, Papago Park is a mountain biking, hiking and trail-running haven, with a canal path flanking it for recreational cycling. Directly south of Papago Park is Tempe Town Lake, which features a multiuse path that ties into the Indian Bend Wash system and offers kayak, canoe or paddleboard rentals.
