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 for 2240 Mimosa Dr. The building would replace the 1965 apartment complex currently occupying the space (half a block east from the corner with Revere St. where that other condo midrise project got tangled in a protracted variance request fight last fall). Citiscape’s chief designer says the project is designed to eventually “fade into the landscape” with the help of some up-the-wall greenery 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 at just below $2 million 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 one 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]
