Remember the condos in the West End that professional line-standers hired by real-estate agents queued up for at the crack of dawn? Some even spent the night outside in November to get first dibs on the initial 20 units that were released for pre-sale.
Well, now we actually know what they were buying.
Back then, buyers were committing to condos sight unseen, since the building—the Westlight—was still a total construction zone. Much of it remains under construction, but there is a finished model unit that developer EastBanc can now show off.
The building’s sales director Mei Mei Venners says 30 of the 71 condos are still available—priced from $1,385,000 to $4.5 million— and they will soon be released for sale. She says she expects the building to be ready for move-ins in October.
The 2,249-square-foot model unit has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a den. It is under contract for $2,335,000.
