More new homes are under construction in Manchester, as Fourth River Development broke ground on phase II of its Columbus Square
development. The latest phase will bring four new homes to the former brownfield site, a project that has already begun breathing new life into this corner of the historic Northside neighborhood.
Sally Flinn, of Fourth River Development LLC, says the project has received significant interest based on its urban setting, the quality of the new construction, and now, because of its proximity to the new Allegheny Station.
“Based on the success that we've had on the current phase we hope to continue to just keep rolling and moving forward,” she says.
The latest phase will bring two types of homes to Columbus Avenue, on the opposite end of the development site’s original five homes
. Two of the new homes will be large, four bedroom, three and a half bath (type C) models; and two will be three bedroom, two and a half bath (type A) models.
Prices range from $325,000 to $214,000 for the various models. Flinn says one already has a buyer, while the other three are still available.
According to Flinn, the type A homes have proven to be the most popular style thus far. Moving forward, the remaining 22 homes at Columbus Square will be built based on pre-sales.
One of the type C homes will be used as a model, and will feature a significant amount of upgrades, including a fireplace and granite counter tops, in order to showcase all that is available in various home packages, Flinn says.
