Arizona: Growing Up and Offering Resort Style Living at its Best

Jun 4, 2008
The place to be; it seems like such a simple phrase with such a direct meaning. But when it comes to real estate the phrase takes on all sorts of new meaning, not to mention various implications. The place to be might be might be a cottage in the north country for some. For others the place to be might be a ranch style house on Maui. For others the place to be might be a hut on the beach. But for many the place to be is Arizona!

Arizona is a southwestern state that joined the union on February 14, 1912. It was the 48th state to do so. It's capital and largest city is Phoenix. Tucson, Mesa, and Glendale follow Phoenix closely in high population numbers. The state is well known for its deserts: the mild winters and dry, hot summers. As of 2006, Arizona pushed Nevada out of the top spot for highest population growth.

Arizona real estate is seen as desirable by many. It's landscapes and horizons are often noted as inspirational and have done their part to attract a large number of new residents in recent years (as well as tourists). Real estate is all about location and if Arizona has anything it's great location! It's one of the four corner states with easy access to: New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and California. It also shares an international border with Mexico. Arizona itself offers residents and visitors alike the Grand Canyon and the South Mountain Preserve as well as several beautiful state parks, national forests and monuments.

But it can't claim oceanfront property. It's always been Arizona's downfall when it come to real estate. Many regard oceanfront property as the prime location. George Strait brought the point home with his hit song starting off with, "I've got some ocean front property in Arizona; from my front porch you can see the sea...If you'll buy that I'll throw the golden gate in free." We're not going to be able to argue that Arizona does offer ocean front property; that would require a national disaster of monstrous proportions. But thanks to WestStone Communities, we can almost make that argument. They've introduced Onyx Tower to Arizona and it's making a big splash.

Onyx Tower stands out from the rest. And it's not the sleek, urban design of the 26 story, 1 to 3 bedroom resort condo tower. It's simply the location; the most exclusive location available. In addition to claiming the prime location of Arizona with an even more sought after proximity to Phoenix and the vast amount of cultural and recreational opportunities available in the area, Onyx Tower is in the magical position of claiming "waterfront property" in Arizona. Now that's saying something considering this prime location just happens to be right smack dab in the middle of the Arizona desert.

Resorts are meant to promote relaxation and recreation. And Onyx Tower offers it all: waterfront views & activities, an exclusive sky lounge available to residents and guests, movie theatre, billiards room, fitness center, fireside lounge, infinity edge pool, spa and lap pool and more. The exclusive resort style residences at Onyx claim easy access to: Sky Harbor Airport, ASU, Mill Avenue and downtown Tempe, upscale shopping, and Phoenix's diverse mix. If that doesn't "promote relaxation and recreation" then nothing will!

WestStone Communities' (http://www.weststonecommunities.com) Waterfront Resort, Onyx Tower, is accentuated by a sister resort available in a nearby area called Vantage. Vantage boasts a different type of resort lifestyle. Offset by the urban resort lifestyle of Onyx Tower, Vantage's Tuscan inspired look and feel is appreciated by a different type of resort resident.

Vantage resort style community offers exemplary design that stands out in the seemingly effortless combination of architectural and community planning details. Vantage boasts just as many "extras" as Onyx (minus the waterfront feature, of course), but adds a few "extras" all its own. Vantage residents will find themselves in the most desirable zip code in the area with one of the rare opportunities to own their own view of the Ahwatukee foothills. Vantage has two spas, an outdoor entertaining area, a clubhouse with theatre, a fitness room, and an entertainment lounge. And that's not the end of the impressive list of fabulous extra that Vantage claims. Vantage residents also find themselves backed right up against the South Mountain Preserve with all 16,000 acres worth of recreational opportunities and views that are priceless.

When it comes to real estate, Arizona can definitely hold its own. And when it comes to resort style living in Arizona, WestStone has all the bases covered. Between Onyx Tower and Vantage every craving is met in full.
