Scotts­dale, Ariz — By the end of this year, lux­ury res­i­dences will bloom in the North Scotts­dale desert, back­ing on to more than 11,000 hectares of pris­tine open land pop­u­lated by flow­er­ing cacti and bor­dered by the McDow­ell moun­tain range.

And for leg­endary Arizona de­vel­oper Lyle An­der­son — who has made a mark with the 12 golf cour­ses he has built in com­mu­ni­ties with equally leg­endary golfer Jack Nick­laus — the kilo­me­tres of trails and McDow­ell Sono­ran en­vi­ron­men­tal pre­serve land will be one of the prime at­trac­tions of the new Sierra Re­serve de­vel­op­ment.

Sierra will not only be An­der­son’s first com­mu­nity since the start of the U.S. re­ces­sion, it will also be the first new com­mu­nity in North Scotts­dale in a decade.

The pro­ject, ex­pected to take five to six years to com­plete, will also be the first An­der­son com­mu­nity in the Scotts­dale area that does not come with a golf course.
