A rep from Citiscape tells Swamplot that the company will be starting up presales for 11 multi-million-dollar condo units in the 7-story midrise it’s planning forÂ 2240 Mimosa Dr. The building would replace the 1965 apartment complex currently occupying the space (half a block eastÂ from the corner with Revere St. whereÂ that other condo midrise project got tangled inÂ aÂ protracted variance request fightÂ last fall). Citiscape’s chief designerÂ says the project is designed to eventually “fade into the landscape” with the help of someÂ up-the-wall greeneryÂ on the facade:
Ledges on each of the 6 residential floors also appears to support some over-the-edge greens:
Per the current plans, the top floor would be occupied by a single penthouse, while the 5 floors below it would be split into 2 units of 3 bedrooms each. The price tags on those start atÂ just below $2 millionÂ for a 4,400 sq.-ft. unit on the 2nd floor; both numbers appear to rise with elevation up to the $2.65 million, 4,486-sq.-ft. units on the 6th story. Here’s oneÂ of the layouts currently on display on the trio of HAR listings for the midrise:
The ground floor will be mostly occupied by parking spots:
- Mimosa Terrace [Citiscape]
- 2240 Mimosa Dr. 6b [HAR]
- 2240 Mimosa Dr. 2b [HAR]
