Welcome Home: Frisco’s Boulevard Bend update
It’s still mud season. For more than one reason, mud season has been longer and later than usual this year. Winter is having a hard time giving way to spring. Although a few love the extended ski season Mother Nature has provided, most of us are ready for some much-needed warmer weather. The late-season skiing is great, but down here in town, contractors and excavators are ignoring the mud and pressing forward with work on the infrastructure at Frisco’s most exciting new development, Boulevard Bend. The project, located at the intersection of Summit Boulevard and Eighth Avenue, is showing visible progress with earth work and construction on two key elements. You can’t miss the super-cool Airstream sales trailer, flanked by several pieces of heavy equipment and a RE/MAX balloon, at the site. The project was launched earlier this spring, with cautious speculation as to how, in the current economic climate, a project of its type might succeed. “We’re on a roll. In the first seven weeks after listing Boulevard Bend Condominiums, mostly during mud season, we have placed six units under contract at prices ranging from $225,000 for a one bedroom, to $650,000 for a three bedroom.” Lary Feldman, the developer, said. “We’ve got the right quality design, at the right price, at the right location. Our three-bedroom units are unique. They include a two-car heated garage plus two more covered parking spaces in front of the garage, not to mention all the high-quality finishes. We’re off to an early start between spring snowstorms, digging for utility lines foundations and shaping the pocket park, complete with waterfall. Right now we are ahead of schedule for Christmas, 2010 occupancy of some units.”Mud season represents the gap between the end of winter and the beginning of summer. Memorial Day weekend is typically when the tourists and second homeowners return to town in preparation for Summer. Sales at Boulevard Bend are expected to pick up as we finally head out of mud season and into summer. With six units already under contract during what we normally think of as a slow period, it’s possible that the first phase of construction could be sold out by the 4th of July. Remaining inventory in phase I includes one two-bedroom, and four three-bedroom units, and there are only a few comparable properties currently listed in Frisco.The trailer is generally open daily, from noon to 6 p.m. Call us or visit the trailer when you have a chance to learn more about Boulevard Bend.
