Construction is scheduled to start this week on the newly-redesigned Aston Row townhomes, which now feature a more contemporary look. The for-sale product will complement a 59-unit apartment building currently under construction at the corner of Third and Dennison Avenues in Victorian Village.
The ten townhome units, which will be about 1,800 square feet, all feature two-car garages and rooftop terraces. Jason Snyder of Snyder Barker Investments said he expects the units to be delivered by May of next year, with prices starting at $425,000. A second row of townhomes that would face Starr Avenue is still in the planning stages.
“We have a conceptual design for the Starr Avenue phase but won’t finalize the design and start construction until we sell at least a few units of the Aston Row phase,” said Snyder, adding that they started with the units facing the alley “because it creates a bookend development for our apartment building with it’s location, scale and design. It will dramatically change the experience along the alley which will be a real positive for the residents of both developments and the neighborhood.”
Snyder expects demand to be strong for the townhomes.
“At the moment, there are virtually no new construction ‘for sale’ options for people in Victorian Village. We believe people will find the combination of features that Aston Row provides very attractive.”
As for the Aston Place Apartments, windows are currently being installed and plumbing and electric work is ongoing. The hope is to have the first units available in early February and the building completely finished in early March. Pre-leasing will start in the near future.
