Eldorado on 1st is a collection of seven refined city homes located at 6901 E. 1st Street in the heart of Scottsdale’s Urban Arts District. The development combines spacious and functionally poetic living spaces, innovative architecture, artistic design, and highest quality materials with a location providing future homeowners with immediate access to the numberless arts, dining, cultural and entertainment amenities in downtown Scottsdale.


“With only seven homes available, Eldorado on 1st is a truly exclusive opportunity for a select group of homeowners to experience the finest in urban living in an unparalleled location,” said Chris Chamberlain, a development partner with NADG’s Scottsdale office. “We’re pleased to introduce this singular project to the community.”


“In Scottsdale, we have a cherished tradition to protect…to be a community one aspires to live in. You aspire to reach the point that you can move here to be part of this community; to be part of all it has to offer – the arts, culture and cuisine,” said Scottsdale Vice Mayor David N. Smith. “For this project we were challenged to think outside the box and we did that. I was proud to be part of the approval process and proud to see the development here.”


Eldorado on 1st offers homes ranging in size from 3,202 to 3,472 square-feet, starting at $1.58 million. The multi-level homes are located above two street front offices at the intersection of 1st Street and El Dorado.


Eldorado on 1st is NADG’s first urban residential development in Arizona. The $14 million development is wholly influenced by an art and design sensibility.


“The architecture of the homes at Eldorado on 1st is envisioned to set a new standard of sophisticated and distinctive desert design, elegance and comfort,” said Bruder. “In massing and in scale, materiality and form, each home will be a unique invention for urban living animated each day by the ever changing patterns of shadow and light, giving memory to the subtle seasonal nuances of life.”


Eldorado on 1st homes are designed with concrete and steel construction throughout, superior sound isolation, secured access drive and entry lobby, and attached oversize garages. Personal elevators serve individual dwelling units, and open-tread stairwells will be naturally illuminated with clerestory windows.


Homebuyers will choose from flexible floor plans, all of which feature well-proportioned master suites with generous walk-in closets. Each home will have a private, shaded rooftop patio and valet closets for convenient refuse collection service. A community pool and spa will serve all residents.


Exquisite finishes will set Eldorado on 1st apart from other luxury urban living projects and include smooth plastered walls with museum reveal bases, wide plank walnut floors in living areas and bedrooms, Bulthaup kitchens, large format washroom tile floors, custom white oak casework, and customizable Elfa closets.


South Korean-born artist Jay Atherton has been commissioned to create an art installation for the community entitled Four Points for Contemplation.


The general contractor for Eldorado on 1st is Frontera Building Company, of Phoenix. Scott Jarson and Tracey Zemer with AZarchitecture/Jarson & Jarson Real Estate are handling sales.


Construction and pre-sales for Eldorado on 1st are now underway, and construction is expected to be complete by early 2017.


The Eldorado on 1st Sales Center is located within the offices of AZarchitecture/Jarson & Jarson Real Estate, at 3707 N. Marshall Way, Unit 5, in Scottsdale, Ariz. The Sales Center is open Monday through Saturday, with presentations by appointment.
