About Phoenix Desert Ridge...
The Northeast Valley is home to the communities of Tramonto, Del Webb/Pulte's Fireside, Sonoran Foothills, Dynamite Mountain Ranch, Tatum Ranch, Dove Valley Ranch, and Aviano. However, the stars in this area of Phoenix are the master-planned community of Desert Ridge and the village of Desert View.
As the state's largest master-planned community, Desert Ridge encompasses 5,700 acres and over 50,000 lucky residents will call this one of a kind community home. Desert Ridge includes the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa, Mayo Clinic Hospital, Desert Ridge Marketplace, CityNorth, and the regional campus for American Express. There are currently approximately 4,000 homes in place at Desert Ridge. Desert Ridge is also the home of the Fireside neighborhood, an active adult/55+ older community.
Desert View Village is situated north of Desert Ridge and is bounded by Carefree Highway on the northern edge, Central Arizona Project Canal to the south, Cave Creek Road to the west, and Scottsdale Road to the east. Still in development, the design of this village will be developed by four distinct character areas: Desert Preserve Character Area, which serves as an environmental buffer roughly a mile on either side of the Cave Creek Wash; Rural Desert Character Area will include equestrian properties; Suburban Desert Character Area utilizes the look and feel of the Sonoran desert in its design complete with channelized drainage; and Growth Corridor/Core Character Area will reflect the village of Desert Ridge.
This area of Phoenix is home to fabulous malls, including the Desert Ridge Marketplace and the Paradise Valley Mall. Scottsdale Fashion Square, Kierland Commons and The Biltmore Fashion Park are also close by with their one-of-a-kind shops and upscale boutiques. This area is also home to the state's largest luxury resort, JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa, which boasts two golf courses and a spa, meeting rooms and a number of fine eateries.
