When it comes to Phoenix Az waterfront property, certain bragging rights can be claimed by each city or town depending on the lake communities within their city limits. For example, Chandler has more lake communities than any other city. And Gilbert has 3 of the 6 water ski communities in the Phoenix valley. Scottsdale Waterfront Residences often claims the most expensive waterfront listing in the valley. When you consider Tempe lake communities, it could easily be distinguished as having the most diverse selection of Phoenix waterfront property.
Tempe has the oldest lake community, The Lakes, located just south of Baseline Road and east of Rural Rd. The Lakes offers a variety of housing choices from waterfront patio homes, townhouses, and single family residences. The Lakes also features a club house, community pool and spa.
The Oasis at Anozira is a smaller but impressive Tempe lake community. As many developers surrounded lake with as many homes as possible, the waterfront at Oasis at Anozira is dedicated to community open space and pathways.
Tempe features some of the valley’s most contemporary urban living. Tempe town lake provides a unique backdrop for these urban lake communities. The location couldn’t be better; close to ASU, the light rail, Mill Avenue, Tempe town park, and the list goes on. Combining lakefront living with these lifestyle amenities provides a truly unique living experience.
Northshore, just east of Rural Rd. features 134 apartment style condos that were built in 2008. It includes a social lounge, fitness center and a gated parking garage. A very unique feature of Northshore Condos is the outdoor gas fireplace on each unit’s oversized balcony.
Regatta Pointe while not directly on the lake is right across the street and enjoys many of the benefits of close proximity to Tempe town lake. Located south of Tempe town lake and west of Mill Ave., the light rail and Tempe beach park are within walking distance from Regaatta Pointe. With everything being so close and convenient, it might be too convenient for a student attending ASU and trying to maintain a good GPA.
Edgewater, the first of the two Hayden Ferry Lakeside Suncor residential condo developments has 40 residences that were sold out in 2006. Since the market peak, Edgewater condos have become much more affordable, unfortunately this has taken place through foreclosures and short sales. Many units are selling for 45 – 50% of their original sales price.

Upgraded quality construction includes triple-pane windows, no common walls and seven and a half inches of concrete between the floors with post tension construction. The south tower is 12 stories high and the north tower rises 7 stories to provide fantastic lake views.
