When I spoke with Rick Levin about the McKinley Park Lofts auction yesterday, he mentioned one other development that will be soon auctioning off new-construction homes: Jazz on the Boulevard in North Kenwood and Oakland. Jazz on the Boulevard replaced the former Lakefront Homes public housing project as part of the CHA‘s Plan for Transformation.
The news may come as a bit of a surprise, because The Thrush Companies‘ 137-unit development has always been fairly popular. In fact, Jazz was the winner of the city’s 2007 Crystal Key award for innovation and creativity in urban multi-family housing.
Levin’s Web site says 10 two- and three-bedroom townhouses and and 12 one- to three-bedroom condos will be sold at the auction. The condos were previously priced as high as the $360s, and some of the townhouses were listed in the $620s, according to the site. Levin suggests opening bids in the $130s for the condos, and in the $150s for the townhouses.
Open house hours and more information about the auction are available on Levin’s site.
