Bunglaower reports a 13-story multi-family residential tower is being proposed for 108 E. Livingston Street called Magnolia Rose. The proposed 320 unit development would also include space for six parcels of ground-level retail. The plan, submitted on 4/20, calls for the City to abandon a section of North Rosalind Avenue, which translates to approximately 77,982 SF of right-of-way, to host an adjoined five-story, 395-space parking garage. http://bungalower.com/2017/04/25/developer-eyeing-livingston-wedge-potential-residential-tower/
I wanted to post a thread on this to see if anyone else was interested, curious, or knowledgeable about prefab homes. My girlfriend and I are considering either a major addition to our home or demoing the structure and building a custom home. I understood prefab to be better built due to the ability to build in a controlled environment, but also cheaper due to the economies of scale achieved by building similar homes in one location. This would be especially true for the modular homes. However, I am finding many of the prefab homes are priced in the $350-$500/sqft. range, excluding land costs! One company (Turkel Design) gave me a quote for $143 for site work costs, which would include running the plumbing, electrical, installing the cabinetry, etc. The materials (drywall, cabinets, counters, appliances, etc.) come as part of another $150,000 line item for the budget. The big issue I am having is comparing apples-to-apples. How do I confirm what a comparable house would cost to build on site? Does anyone have an personal experience with these types of homes or projects?
