Park Boulevard are its four-bedroom / 3.5-bath single-family homes, which top out in the $500s. They aren”t the lowest-priced new-construction single-families on the South Side – Renaissance at Beverly Ridge appears to hold that distinction – but they are right in line with the detached homes available at Armour Park Homes in Bridgeport and quite a bit lower than those at Bridgeport Village or Arches at Oakwood Shores.
According to Park Boulevard’s Web site, all of the project’s single-family homes have approximately 2,665 square feet. Residents enter on second floor from a walk-up, and although I can’t make out the dimensions listed in the floor plan, it looks like that level has a living room, kitchen, dining / family space and a powder room. Almost 150 of the 211 homes planned for Park Boulevard’s first phase are up and either occupied or ready for delivery, says sales manager Norma Baskin. People started moving into their homes last May, and several stores and restaurants including Starbucks Coffee, Jimmy Johns, National City Bank and FedEx Kinko’s have moved into the available retail spaces. Something I didn’t notice until after I talked to Baskin was that a significant number of sales appear to have fallen through in the past year. Last April, YoChicago.com reported that Park Boulevard’s first phase was 50 percent sold. Baskin said yesterday that about one-third of the first-phase homes had sold or were under contract. We’re no strangers to seeing sales estimates drop, but a reduction in the double digits is a little surprising.
