I’ve been told countless times in recent months that the concept of pre-construction sales is a relic of the past, and that buyers need to be able to actually see the space before making a decision. However, if the building isn’t finished, the next best option is to put together a virtual tour with digital renderings.
Construction is underway on this six-unit development at 2001 W Race Ave in the Ukrainian Village, and first deliveries won’t begin until the late spring, according to @properties agent Mike Vesole, but we can already get a look at every inch of the building – inside and out – thanks to a nifty development Web site.
The site, 2001WestRace.com, welcomes visitors with an image of the building, which can be seen from multiple angles. If you mouse over the building, each of the six homes illuminate, and a menu with the specs for that particular unit emerge. By clicking on a unit you can enter and view a virtual tour of each condo.
It isn’t quite the same as viewing actual photos or video of a furnished model, and it can take a long time to load, but the site is a vast improvement on your typical pre-construction virtual tour.
According to the site, the three two-bedroom / two-baths have 1,600 to 1,800 square feet of floor space and are priced from the $480s to the $590s, and the three 1,800 to 2,100 square-foot three-bedroom / three-baths are priced from the $520s to the $640s.
