The Wharton Street Lofts, being built in the old Annunciation school at 12th and Wharton, is wrapping up construction and they’ve already started leasing apartments.
A model unit is ready, and the good news is they they appear to have preserved a lot of the school’s original elements, like shelving, floors and wooden room dividers.
Developer Leo Addimando says the first renters could start moving in in mid-March for units on the third and fourth floors, and May to June for the first and second floors. The apartments range from $1,050 for a 536 square foot one-bedroom to $2,400 for a 2-bedroom + loft 3 in 1,697 square feet. Two bedrooms, though, start around $1,900 and there are also a handful of large studios and one three-bedroom available.
For comparison, this 2-bedroom model unit is going for $1,950, unfurnished, plus electric and water.
There is also this cool perk, a green rooftop public space that overlooks adjacent Columbus Square Park, which is poised for a redesign.
As far as the other amenities, from the developer himself:
- A “green” rooftop deck open to all residents.
- A dedicated parking spot for an additional monthly fee of $125/month.
- The building will have a keyless entry system for both exterior and interior unit doors.
- Fully secured including over 30 security cameras throughout the building for added peace of mind.
- All units will include high efficiency washers/dryers and energy efficient HVAC units.
- 24-hour emergency maintenance and general maintenance M-F 9am-5pm.
- Pet friendly and dog park adjacent.
- All high-end appliances and finishes in every unit.
As for the retail tenant, we think we got it, but we’re still trying to confirm.
