Two apartment towers of 10 stories with 146 units would be built northeast of Scottsdale and Camelback roads under a plan submitted Dec. 2 to Scottsdale.
The Peacock Scottsdale project, proposed by Deco Communities, would be similar to plans previously approved for the Safari II project. The original Safari Drive development struggled in the recession when it opened in 2008.
This latest plan would include two levels of underground parking and two 10-story towers that are narrower for the top four floors. It would be built on 2 acres just south of Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale.
Humphrey & Partners Architects drew the Peacock's preliminary plans.
If approved, the apartment project would be just north of the planned Blue Sky apartment development. That stalled project of 700 units in three 13-story buildings would be built on 4.3 acres.
Peacock and Blue Sky are just east of Scottsdale Fashion Square, which announced Dec. 5 it plans to build offices, residential units and a hotel on the north side of the mall.
Deco Communities has built 3,500 residential units since 1996. Its current projects include Envy Downtown Scottsdale, 4422 N. 75th St., Inspire Downtown Scottsdale, 7300 E. Earll Drive and Edison Midtown, 3131 N. Central Ave.
The principals are Robert Lyles, Patricia Watts and Dan Richards.
