A “high-end, ultra-luxury resort” is planned for 17 acres in north Scottsdale near Pinnacle Peak Park.
John Wanninger, of the development group JTW PPL, bought the land just southeast of the 150-acre Pinnacle Peak Park at an Arizona Land Department auction last month for nearly $13 million.
The proposed Pinnacle Peak Resort plans are still in the preliminary stages, Wanninger said. However, the resort is expected to be environmentally friendly and feature a spa, according to Wanninger’s publicist, Dave Cieslak.
North Scottsdale’s Pinnacle Peak has a new gated community coming its way.
Pinnacle Peak Place will put 80 new homes on the 124-acre lot at the northeastern corner of Pima and Happy Valley roads.
The new development sailed through the city’s approval process with no opposition. Even neighbor Henry Becker, who has found it impossible to develop his 95 acres to the south, had no comment.
