Developers can’t build apartments fast enough Downtown, but condominiums are a different story.
Until this summer, only one major condominium project — Neighborhood Launch — had opened Downtown in the past nine years.
That’s changing in a dramatic way with the opening of two high-end condo projects: The LeVeque Tower Residences, in the renovated iconic building of the same name, and Parks Edge, a pair of Arena District condo towers.
The two projects add 151 condominiums Downtown, with prices starting at $450,000 and climbing to $4.4 million for a custom condominium that occupies the entire top floor — almost 14,000 square feet — of the first Parks Edge building. That condo takes up space originally intended for six homes.
While similar in price, finishes and amenities, the LeVeque and Parks Edge condos are dramatically different in style.
Parks Edge units are sleek, modern, wall-of-glass contemporaries, while the LeVeque condos reflect the traditions of the building. Each LeVeque home has a different layout, plus hints of the building’s past such as brass mail chutes (now decorative) and double-hung windows that open.
