Some of downtown Plymouth's newest residents are gearing up to move in by this summer. That's when work on the Parkside of Plymouth project is set to finish.
In defiance of the tough local economy, the downtown development only has six of the building's 18 units still available. The latest sale included a $480,000 custom designed residence with views of Kellogg Park, which the building overlooks. The framing of the 3.5-story building is nearly finished. Construction workers are expected to put the structure's roof on this week.
"We have redesigned a few floor plans to be slightly larger 2 or 3 bedroom residences," says Lesley Aiello, sales and marking director for Parkside of Plymouth. "The smallest units are starting at $250k and the larger at $360k."
Each unit comes with hardwood floors, granite countertops and one underground parking space. Eight of the loft units will be one story while the remaining 10 will be 1.5 stories.
The building will also utilize geothermal heating and cooling units, which are considered at the cutting edge of environmentally friendly building technology. Geothermal uses the constant temperature of the earth to help heat and cool the building, helping keep those costs low.
The 50-foot tall structure faces Penniman Avenue and stands on the space once occupied by a Masonic Temple.
Washington, Michigan-based Meridien Development is the developer behind the project. For information, call Aiello at (734) 357-0625.
