Prices for houses in the latest project, at Goldwater Boulevard and 70th Street, will start in the high $300,000s. Buyers can begin reserving lots for the townhouses, ranging in size from 1,414 to 1,830 square feet, on Nov. 15.

Plans call for the Aerium units to have multiple balconies, oak staircases, quartz countertops and Italian Bertazzoni gas ranges available in Ferrari and Lamborghini colors. The exterior of the development will include wood-grain porcelain tile and wire-cut brick.

Ken Johnson, vice president of strategic marketing for the project’s developer, Landmark Homes USA, said Aerium is designed to offer style, comfort and “endless entertainment possibilities.”

Last week, York-based JEN Partners and Antera Development announced plans to start selling 90 condominiums at the Enclave at Borgata, near the southwest corner of Scottsdale Road and Lincoln Drive.

Earlier this month, developers began work on a $350 million luxury condo project, complete with a robotic valet and private elevators, in north Scottsdale’s Silverleaf community. Prices for the 213 units, near Pima Road and Thompson Peak Parkway, to start at $1 million.
