Wow! These really look great....beautiful. :thumbsup: A great addition to West End.

But with a mid 700's price range, I'll simply be admiring from afar. :lol:

They really do look good from the models. I've always had a thing for brownstones, maybe its that narrow-but-tall-Charleston-Single-esque quality.

I am starting to wonder where the folks work to afford all of these new residences downtown (and are they hiring? :silly: )

Mid 700's? OUCH!

Looks like a great new development for this area. Kind of expensive though. Also, there is a "for sale" sign up at the intersection of River and Rhett Street across River Street from the old Shealy Electric site. I think it's for 2 acres of land, but don't quote me on that. It would definitely be a great place for another mid-rise mixed use development.

That site has been available for a long time now, just not with a sign. THink it has been with Prudential. Anyway, think its about .69 Acres and $2.6 Mil or something like that.

When will these be starting? Are they near the 8 story Rhett St condo project? Where are these in relation to the Shealy site?

Any news on these?

Anyone?

I wonder how they're selling, or how interest is. They're awfully expensive, but I'd really like to see them start construction soon.

The way that it's laid out reminds me of the really bright development off of Augusta next to Schlotzky's (sp!). I really like that one and hope to see more with as much character, either downtown or along Augusta.

Does anyone know more about this development? It appears only 1 unit of the 9 planned has been sold.

I really like how the developer has brought that Boston/NE feel with this project. Especially in an area such as the West End where you already have "Mini Fenway."

I do agree with many of you that the price point is a tad high but with the quality they're presenting and over 3000 square feet per unit, I don't think they're that far off.

PS - progress pics would be great as I live in Charlotte.

I have not heard anything about these, but did enjoy reading the website. I found this quote to be quite interesting:

"One (unit 2) already sold, eight still available. Ground already broken. Ready Spring 2008."

Have they seriously started doing any work on these? Are they proceeding with construction before selling more units? I'm not complaining, but as nice as these will be they sure will be sinking a lot of money into the project up front.

Yes they have started, with the foundation in place for the first two units and site work underway for the other units. I try to post a few pictures soon.

According to recent R.E. advertising, two of these have now sold. I would imagine those would be the two that face Rhett St., conjuncture on my part though.

Is this the site? I jogged by this morning, but there was no sign about the brownstones. I can't think of anything else this could be.

Thanks.

Are they going ahead and building all units, even though only two are sold?

It looks nice, and the only thing that I'd give it above a Brownstone say on the South End or Beacon St is that there are more windows, and the rooftop terrace. Other than that, 800K is absurd to pay for a place in Greenville, seemingly even in downtown. Brownstones up here start at 300K and go up, but still...799 in Greenville is borderline retarded. I could be wrong, but then again, it wouldn't surprise me.

While the price is steep, the square footage of the properties is huge. It comes to around $265/sf. That is among the highest in our market, but not crazy.

Granted it is comparable to Boston/NYC prices though. Greenville does have enough millionaires that could go for that though...

Brownstones always amazed me with how much square footage they have, it really is something.

Maybe once they sit a little longer with no action, maybe the developer will change the plans to downsize the square feet and increase the number of units, whether the increase involves vertical division or a squeeze horizontally... More units and more residents would help the West End. :)
