Are Smart Cars the new plasma TVs? The Macon Group is offering free Smart Cars to buyers who sign contracts at before October 1 at Berteau Terrace, a 33-unit new-construction development at 2056 W Berteau Ave. This is the second Smart Car offer we’ve seen at a new-construction condo development in less than a year, so technically, that constitutes a trend.
The other Smart Car deal was offered by Bluewater Companies at 5430 Sheridan in October. That promotion wasn’t very successful, considering that there are currently three more condos on the market than there were when the offer was announced.
Berteau Terrace first appeared on the New Developments page of the Jameson Real Estate Web site earlier this summer, and the only information I have about the four-story building is what I’ve gleaned from around the Web. According to The Macon Group’s Web site, the development is aiming for LEED certification, and it will have 7,000 square feet of retail space and 58 parking spaces (or 116 Smart Car spaces, I suppose).
The only condo in the development that’s currently listed on the MLS is unit 212, a two-bedroom / one-bath unit that’s priced in the $270s, and parking spaces are priced at $30,000. The listing says that deliveries are scheduled for spring 2010.
