Several years and a new developer later, a cluster of high-end Old Fourth Ward homes is finally nearing completion. Way back in the Great Recession doldrums, work began on two residences on Bishop Way, a small street tucked off Randolph Street and directly overlooking Freedom Parkway. One was completed and sold but another was stopped mid-construction — from what we're hearing, the original developer failed to properly subdivide the property and was shut down by the code department. Long story short, the project wound up in other hands and construction has been under way on the remaining five homes for the last several months. Kevin Maher, principal at PlaceMaker Design and architect of the currently under construction homes, said all five are nearing completion and "should be on the market soon."
Each townhome has four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and ranges between 3,000 and 3,100 square feet — not including sizable exterior decks and rooftop patios. Maher said he wasn't privy to potential pricepoints, but, for what it's worth, property records list the value of one of the neighboring, completed homes at just over $650,000. Mark it down as another high-dollar addition to the bustling Old Fourth Ward — and, whether you think that's a positive or a negative, let's hear five cheers for the completion of a project once slowed by the economy and mismanagement.
