“Shade at Desert Ridge is an excellent investment opportunity. Located in one of the Valley’s most desirable submarkets, residents have immediate access to major employers, high-end retail, and contemporary dining,” said CBRE’s Sean Cunningham. “Shade is well-positioned to capitalize on the strong employment and population growth forecasted for the Valley over the next five years. Multifamily performance in the North Scottsdale/Phoenix area will be driven by significant higher-wage job growth trends and a consistently growing presence of young people attracted to the area’s unique amenities.”


Shade at Desert Ridge is located less than two miles from the world-renowned Mayo Clinic Hospital and is surrounded by additional Fortune 500 employment, including American Express, USAA, Discover Card, Go Daddy Group, Prudential, and Vanguard. Additionally, there are plans for a biomedical campus surrounding the Mayo Clinic. Shade at Desert Ridge is also adjacent to Desert Ridge Marketplace, putting residents within walking distance of high-end retail and contemporary dining.


Developed in 2006, Shade at Desert Ridge features resort-inspired architecture, spacious floor plans and attached garage parking.
