    They are already selling?
    Problems? They have been doing a lot of work on this new condo bldg. since they “finished” construction.

      The Denison next door is having a ton of work done, too. That place isn’t but two years old and it looks like the facades are being rebuilt. I can’t imagine buying a “new” building needing that much work such a short time after delivery.

      • I noticed that too…the Denison’s work has been going on for some time, so it can’t just be cosmetic. I wonder if they even had enough funds in their reserve to pay for whatever repairs are being done. That would suck to pay $600K-700K for a condo and get slapped with a special assessment right away.

          They should still be covered by the builders warranty. So unless they’re fighting it, I imagine this work is on the construction firm.

      This building actually hasn’t had any work done to it since the original construction–that’s just the Denison next door. We’re the owners, and although we love the place we’re leaving because we’re ready to start a family. This is a PERFECT place for a young couple though.

        Sorry, I took a second look, It is the Denison.
        I don’t sleep anymore, I have kids.

        Good luck starting a family!

        • Sarah Hutchinson

          Thank you! We’re looking forward to a lack of sleep very soon. :)

            So you’re moving because you don’t want to have to move with a child later on or getting into a better school district early? I’m curious because it’s a bit larger than the typical “starter” condo.

          • Sarah Hutchinson

            Anon- yes, basically. It’s enough space that we could easily have a baby there, but I just don’t have it in me to move with a toddler. So we’re hoping to move to a good school district and get settled from the get-go. You’re right about the space though—one of the things we liked most about this condo when we were looking two years ago was the bedroom size. So many places in the city claim “bedrooms” that are just too small to be more than glorified offices. The ceilings are high, the bedrooms are big, and the construction was top notch (unlike our poor neighbors in the Denison as others have already pointed out).

    That kitchen looks awfully short on upper cabinets.

    • Rich

      The kitchen looks small even for a small-ish 2/2.

    I wonder if these interiors are going to age well. All of these condo flips look so temporary?. (not sure if that is the word I am thinking of) They also all look the same – though some of that is the staging. All I can do is shrug my should at this and go MEH and then think MEH should not cost $600,000.
