128 West Falls Street Construction Update, 7/2019

12 07 2019

Looks like it’s safe to say that the infill project at 128 West Falls Street is completed. With the exception of some interior finish work and landscaping, the project is largely finished and will be ready for occupancy for the start of August. The guys at Plumb Level and Square were hard at work so the photos are a bit limited, but I do appreciate them allowing me to wander around a bit. Heritage Builders is the developer for the five-unit project, with three three-bedroom and two two-bedroom units. The construction crew said the units were designed to be easily reconfigured if desired.

One of the guys expressed disappointment that the copper exterior finishes were already discoloring, but that’s kinda the point of copper. As it oxidizes, the copper darkens and takes on a grey-green patina that also waterproofs and protects the copper below the surface. A nice detail to have if you’re trying to fit into a neighborhood of much older homes.

The addresses are 126 West Falls Street, 132A West Falls Street, and 132B West Falls Street. 126 is the stand-alone single-family unit on the east side of the lot, a 3 bedroom, 3 bath asking $2,680/month. 132A is the duplex in the middle – Unit 1 is the east (right) unit, Unit 2 the west (left) unit, with asking prices of $2,750/month for Unit 1 and $2,650/month for Unit 2, discounted slightly perhaps because it’s next to Route 13. The two-family unit at 132B West Falls Street is asking $1,650/month and $1,850/month for its units. The units come with electric fireplaces ans dishwashers, but surprisingly for their premium p[rice point, they don’t have washers and dryers included, just the hookups.

That little one-story house looks so boxed in now. I hope they at least start charging a little less for it now that it has no yard or visual privacy. I guess this is what happens when there’s such a critical shortage of housing that every available patch of land gets built on. (And at least the new buildings are welcoming and visually attractive.)
