aliber – The Wealth 
Development Company, 
and MODUS Development 
have partnered to establish 
Eclipse, a net-zero energy 

upcoming townhome development 
that will raise the bar for innovation 
and sustainability in the East Valley.  

The two companies envelop the ideal 
synergy of goals for the project: to 
differentiate and leverage themselves 
in terms of green technology.

“What we’ve heard from our investors 
is that they’re very excited about the 
fact that we’re stepping onto these 
types of innovative projects,” says 
Chris Loeffler, Co-founder and CEO 
of Caliber. “It’s not just the fact that 
we’re taking the risk, it’s that the local 
investor community is supporting us 
by putting their dollars to work.”  

MODUS Development was the first 
company to bring a net-zero project 
to Scottsdale. Their focus is to 
work with a real estate investment 
company like Caliber to expand and  
grow the trend in Phoenix.

The vision for Eclipse was to push the envelope for design 
and sustainability, while still offering advanced technological 
features and a prime location for future residents.

 The site 

itself was brought to MODUS by the city of Scottsdale, with 
the goal of catering to a demographic that is educated and 
interested in sustainability, and to bring in new businesses 
from surrounding states.

 “Projects like this are supportive 

of what the entire city is trying to do,” Loeffler says. “As we 
bring this product to the table, it will help bring businesses 
from environmentally focused states, particularly California. 
You have to combine lifestyle with business.”

 The upcoming 

community, located on Granite Reef Road just south of 
McDowell Road, took over two years to execute. However, it 
was an ideal spot for what the two companies were looking 
to achieve, with its close proximity to the freeway and the 
rapidly growing high-tech corridor led by Sky Song, which 
has over 3,000 employees.

“It is wonderful seeing Caliber 

developing the Eclipse net zero project in Scottsdale; not 
only is it a model of sustainable development, it is a fantastic 
response to the demand for quality and features desired by the 
influx of new residents and skilled workers in the area,” says 
Danielle Casey, Director for Economic Development for the 
City of Scottsdale.
