  • Hideous decorating!

  • Decent space and amenities. Probably a good deal.

  • Why do I think this place is unattractive and cramped? is it the furniture?

    • It doesn’t have walk-in closet sized bedrooms. Normal sized kitchen. Living/dining is big enough for an actual dining table. Nothing wrong with the space.

  • I think this is a really nice place – there are so few 3 bedroom properties, I would be trying to get this if we were staying!

  • convenient for a family with kids at BASIS, or empty nesters who want a bunch of space. I can’t afford it but I like it!

  • I think too much space is wasted on creating two ginormous bathrooms. If the bath to the master bedroom were a little narrower, you could have more space for the dining area. Or even better, make the other bedroom the master with that huge bathroom and make the other bathroom just a toilet and shower. No need for two bathtubs.

    • This infuriates me about most newer condo buildings. Sometimes you even see huge powder rooms. I always think it is an ADA compliance issue.

  • The 3-bedroom condo that’s not a penthouse. So rarely spotted in the wilds here, that one hardly knows how to evaluate the thing.

    • Agreed. I think there’s enough demand for towers of these 3 bedroom condos all over the city but developers prioritize studio and 1 or 2 br’s, and apartments over condos, and the city just rubber stamps it all and wonders why families can’t afford to live in the city. So dumb.

      • You find them in an odd collection of buildings–best address places that are expensive and house sized, places in Southwest esp those with townhouses, 60s buildings in outer areas, and then they pop-up in a few 70s/80s buildings. Probably a mismatch with where schools are, but excellent for empty nesters, esp. if they have a some home business or host a lot of friends and kids/grandkids.

      • developers no where the money is. Despite all the demand I am sure the price/ft is higher in smaller units.

        • For a lazy developer, that’s right. This is $760k for 1400 square feet. Cut it in half and you’d have two 700-square foot units that may well fetch over $380k each. But 1) a clever developer could create appealing family-friendly condo communities in locations that aren’t as appealing to single Millennials but are in better school districts. They could do things like child care center in the retail space, rooftop playground (instead of bocce courts), etc. 2) if the city were serious about retaining families, they could easily encourage the construction of a handful of family-friendly buildings. You know, basically, simply create an allowance where you can build some extra square-footage if it’s for 3 bedrooms. But yes, if the city doesn’t try and developers are lazy too, it won’t happen very often.

    Looks like a nice place – spacious and mostly updated, with lots of storage, and the location is great. I think they should have invested in =The living room area looks like it doesn’t get a lot of natural light though – I don’t think I like that.

      Dammit, didn’t mean to hit Enter. Just saying I think they should have invested in some staging as the furniture makes the place look smaller than it is.

      • I don’t think they needed to swap out furniture per se, but moving a few pieces to a storage unit temporarily would have been a good idea.

  • The kitchen looks awful! in such a horrible spot! it’s basically the foyer lol I’d cut into the space of the bedroom next to it and try to create something more open! yuck!

  • I expected more from a 3-bedroom condo. Very disappointing. So cramped, and yet so much wasted space. Not a good deal.
