Conservation Land Saved From Condos; City Hopes To Purchase

DUNEDIN, FL — With a proposal to develop the property into condominiums now off the table, Dunedin city commissioners unanimously agreed Tuesday to find a way to purchase and preserve the environmentally sensitive Douglas-Hackworth property.

Prior to her death in July, philanthropist Gladys Douglas-Hackworth stated that the two parcels of endangered scrub habitat she owned at Virginia Avenue and Keene Road should be preserved in their natural state. The parcels, totaling 43.44 acres, are just outside the Dunedin city limits.

Dunedin residents and environmentalists launched a series of sidewalk protests when they learned that, despite Douglas-Hackworth’s wishes, national home builder Pulte Homes had a contract to purchase the property from the Douglas-Hackworth trust for $14.5 million to build 130 condominiums.

Pulte had until Oct. 17 to conduct due diligence on the pending purchase. However, the home builder allowed the deadline to pass without making an offer to the trust.

Shipton said there will be rental options with long- and short-term leases.

“We also think this creates a very nice path to purchase, in particular, for young professionals,” he said. “You rent here in Sky Signature Suites, you get climatized to the lifestyle and then you can transition into a condo later on.”

Stantec residents will also have access to the amenities at the neighbouring JW Marriott, a rooftop terrace, an infrared sauna, a fitness facility and a golf simulator.

Downtown Condos Lead Manhattan’s Luxury Real Estate Deals, Again

For the second week in a row, 14 high-end contracts were signed last week in Manhattan, according to Olshan Realty. That’s five fewer than the same week last year.

In the 31 weeks since mid-March, when Covid-19 began spreading in New York, downtown properties have been the priciest sales of the week 17 times. And most of these properties were bought by local buyers “betting on the home team,” according to Donna Olshan, president of Olshan Realty and author of the report released Monday.

The make-up of last week’s homes was nine condos, two townhouses and three co-ops.

Condos offer some top locations for urban living

Choosing a place to live in an urban setting has the best perks begins with location, location, location.

Houston condominium residents’ options are the optimum way to take advantage of all that these prime locations have to offer.

According to ThePinnaclelist.com’s article, New Standard of Urban Luxury-Advantages of Condo Living for Home Ownership, the appeal for condo living has increased over the last few decades with four primary reasons. These include location, price, amenities, and upkeep.

Location is the primary concern as urbanization as condos offer more living choices in city areas. With price, a single-family home might be unaffordable to some looking to reside within the cityscape, but condos offer an attractive alternative. Amenities in condos are a given with gyms, pools, and a wide variety of services. And finally, upkeep is one more thing not having to worry about when it comes to residing in a condo.

New condo listings on the island of Montreal were up 72% in the third quarter, the biggest annual increase in 17 years, according to data from the Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers. The greater Montreal area recorded a 61% jump.

A vibrant economy, steady flows of immigrants and affordable home prices compared with Toronto turned Quebec’s biggest city in a hot market in recent years. Now both cities are suffering from side effects of the Covid-19 crisis: Immigration has slowed, depressing the rental market in city centers, while some people who are doing their jobs from home are seeking more space in the suburbs.

The sixth floor, which has no windows and is where LES has its board room and conference room, is likely to be developed into some sort of communal space, Geis said. He said one potential use that’s been discussed is turning it into a private workspace for use by residents.

Hallie Salem of the city’s Urban Development Department said she was “very excited that Craig has come to us again” with another project.
