The development team that had hoped to put a 7-story, 24-unit condo building dubbed Mandell Montrose on the corner of Commonwealth and Fairview streets appears to have given up entirely on that effort now: 3 days ago, the property — which includes the house-turned-leasing-office pictured above — was listed for sale at a price of $2.6 million. It’s the second condo project that failed to get off this particular ground in the past 2 years. The seller Midtown Uptown Development Partners picked up on the site after a different developer’s plans to put an 8-story building called Flats on Fairview there fell through.
The good news is that this porch view from the adjacent house remains totally unobstructed:
Absent previous signage — which appeared to have fallen off the 1920s-era building last summer — it’s starting to look a little more like the shady 3-bedroom home it was originally:
Up for a swim?
Combined with the 12,000-sq.-ft. vacant plot on the corner, the parcel taken up by the house brings the total acreage of what’s for sale to just over 0.4.

We have moved beyond the adage of “third time’s the charm” and are now working to complete “the cat has nine lives” on this concept.
So they tore down that cute little farmhouse for nothing… bastards.
Let’s keep with the alliteration and go with Commonwealth Condos next…
Another Sudhoff project gone Kaput lol…
When they were asking north of $1 million for a two bedroom flat, I thought they were kidding. But apparently, realllity did not kick in as the developer remains overly optimistic on his chances to hit it big. I mean…not even half an acre (16.000 square ft?) for $2.6 million?
I think they should try a third time, just for comic effect.
Overly ambitious price for land best suited for townhouses or single family homes.
