A long-derelict home on Lenox Road near Sidney Marcus Boulevard will soon be replaced by a range of gleaming new modern townhomes. "Boulevard at Lenox" is planned to be built at the intersection of Canterbury Road and Lenox Road.
And it won't be cheap.
The project, designed by local firm Surber Barber Choate + Hertlein Architects, will feature 10 townhomes, each rising four stories and topped by a "dynamic penthouse level." Starting at more than $1 million each, the 3,700-square-foot units will be pretty posh, with elevators, guest parking for each unit, three bedrooms, and four-and-1/2 bathrooms each.
The project represents a return to the high-end residential roots of the architecture firm, who have been busy in the Old Fourth Ward, working on Ponce City Market and a recently proposed hotel by Krog Street Market.
But things have gotten off to a bit of a rocky start, with the developer being cited for illegally removing trees on the property after demolition permits were issue for the house. Nonetheless, construction on the townhomes should start in the fall.
