Not to get off subject, but why do all of these have to be so expensive. How many people can afford this price range? I believe a huge market is undeserved because everything they build now is "Luxury" and costs over half a million at least. I really think if they could build 2-3 bedroom condos for $200-$350k, they would sell out quickly. Something like Ivy Lofts but bigger rooms and less amenities. Am I the only one who sees this large void in the market place?

It probably is lower margins, harder to convince people of, and more risky mortgage wise

 

 that being said, I would buy one

There are likely 100+ condos inside the loop in that price range on the market today.  Right now, on HAR.  I don't think there is a shortage.  Here is one:

if the contract falls through, will you be buying?

This is right by Arnold & Itkin. I drove by on the way back to the office today. Beat to the punch by Urby once again. Though, I think that's like saying Usain Bolt beat me in a 100m dash at this point.

Just did a search on HAR  There are 250 2BR+ condos/townhouses for sale inside the Loop in the $200,000-350,000 price range.

I stand corrected. To my defense, I was thinking new builds at that price range not existing.

There are plenty of new builds (2015-2016) in that price range as well:  Midtown, EADO, near northside, Spring Branch etc etc.

I love all these little projects like this one, Morningside Mansions, Village at River Oaks, etc.! They may be small but they are what's going to really densify the inner loop, filling in the space between the bigger skyscraper clusters.

Achh, lose the handles on the cabinets & details on the island. Joking of course, as this is quite risqué in our market.

I am actually surprised to see gold-tone faucets in the bathroom.  Those have been "out" for a long time now, I think.  I wonder if the design trend is reversing?

Those fixtures are likely brass and yes, it's coming back. The "new" brass is less polished and more understated than the 1980s version but I'm not a huge fan.

Thanks for the info.  I wasn't a fan the last time.  I guess I need to see these "new brass" fixtures in person to decide if I like them.

I like the new brass features. They are at the Lancaster and look good. Don't ever stay there though because that hotel is vile

Does anyone know if this is just a different development by the same group or if the original developers sold the lot after they clear cut it? This was going to be some Italian inspired joint filled with patio homes and they clear cut so many beautiful trees that could have been saved with the new footprint.

The BizJournal link in the first post says it's a different group - now Stolz Partners, originally was Butler Brothers
