One Realty broker Jeff Plous on Thursday will officially launch the Tennyson 7 Townhomes he is co-developing in the up-and-coming Berkeley neighborhood.
Plous will provide tours of the seven units under construction at 4539 Tennyson St., from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m. Prices start at $339,000 for a 1,530-square-foot unit. The most expensive unit is $375,000, with most of them priced around $350,000. Plous said that similar units in Lower Highland, or LoHi, are priced from about $460,000.
So far, one unit has been placed under contract, but Plous expects to sell at least one more this week. One of his partners is veteran developer Paul Stann.
Units have high-end, European-style fixtures. Each unit will have two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, attached garages and energy-efficient heating and cooling systems.
“We’re close to everything,” Plous said, earlier. “Berkeley Park, where the city is spending millions improving it, is a half-block away. You’re walking distance from all of these great restaurants and coffee shops, 10 minutes from downtown and five minutes from I-70.”
He expects them to primarily to appeal “to people like me. Professionals in their late 20s and early 30s.”
On the other hand, the one unit he has under contract is going to an empty nester couple. Indeed, he said Tennyson 7 is generating more interest from empty nesters than he originally expected. “Basically we are seeing interest from all over the board – not just young professionals.”
The first level of each unit is the garage, the second is the living room and dining area, and the third is a bedroom, and there is a rooftop deck.
“Basically, it is a three-story development with a rooftop deck,” according to Plous. The site is zoned U-MX-3, allowing three-story buildings up to 40-feet tall, although some areas will not be as tall because they face existing homes.
Following the tour, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Plous will host a happy hour to celebrate the introduction of Tennyson 7 at the nearby Parisi restaurant at 4401 Tennyson St.
