 Sustainability features at Luxe Scottsdale in Scottsdale, Arizona


Luxe Scottsdale believes in improving our environment, whether with partnerships or implementing environmentally friendly measures to our property. Based on a 2015 U.S. Energy Information Administration study, between 32% and 44% of total energy use in apartments went solely to temperature control. Water heating was the next largest category, at 27% to 32% of total energy use. Reducing heating needs alone has a big impact on apartment energy use. At its core, we strive to help reduce our resident’s household and lifestyle impact on the environment. We do this by including sustainable features in your apartment through technological devices, appliances, lighting systems, and fixtures. 

Sustainability Features:

  • Reducing carbon footprints
  • Using LED lighting
  • Energy star appliances
  • Motion sensors
  • Recycling bins on site
  • Water Conservation: Low flow fixtures, showerheads, washers
  • No flower policy to reduce water usage.
  • Turf replacement
  • Nest Thermostats

The goal of Luxe Scottsdale’s sustainable construction is to minimize our building’s impact on the environment. With this investment, Luxe Scottsdale can pass along reduced utility costs through energy efficiency.

 Partnership at Luxe Scottsdale in Scottsdale, Arizona


Luxe Scottsdale is taking thousands of bees under its wing with their Queen Bee Aluxea!


We’re proud to take part in the great movement for more eco-conscious cities by bringing honeybees to our property. Our thousands of new residents will pollinate the surrounding urban flora during the spring and summer. We’ll harvest the extra honey they produce, which we’ll be able to share with our community!


Our aim is to make people fall in love with all bees and most importantly take action to protect them. Luxe Scottsdale’s goals are to:

  • Bond over the unique experience and raise environmental awareness.
  • Support pollinator populations within the local urban environment.
  • Reconnect our community with nature and sustainability.


What about stings?

It really shouldn’t be a worry - bees are not interested in humans. They set out on a daily quest to bring back resources to the colony to ensure its development. Did you know honeybees die when they sting? They lose their stinger and part of their abdomen, so they have no interest in stinging unless they feel their colony is threatened.

Get Involved

Want to learn more or just stay in touch with the beehive project? Here’s how:

  • Follow our unique MyHive page! You can enter your email on the page to “follow the buzz” and get notifications when the beekeeper posts an update.

  • This page also has upcoming events in the sidebar, you can plan on meeting the beekeeper at the next inspection to ask questions or even meet the bees!
  • We will have two educational workshops each year, hosted by our beekeeper, that will allow participants to learn more about the bees. These events allow us to get hands-on with the honey extraction process, or making beeswax candles, or even handling the bees themselves. Keep an eye out for these event announcements!
