Tandem breaks ground in Bridgeport

After a sellout of Union Lofts, Bridgeport’s first luxury loft condo project, Tandem Developers has broken ground on Bridgeport Station Lofts, a new mid-rise in the growing Southwest Side neighborhood.

The project, at the corner of 35th and Morgan, includes 66 condos in a masonry building with a steel frame. Around 75 percent of the units already have been sold, according to Sandi Lent, a partner in Garrison Partners, the exclusive sales and marketing agents for Bridgeport Station.

“We’re out of the ground and we’re anticipating completion about a year from now,” said Charles Lerman, project manager for Tandem Developers. “Currently, we are working on the frame, exterior wall and the elevator and stair shafts.”

Although buyers already have claimed about three-fourths of the units at Bridgeport Station Lofts, the first major new-construction condominium development in Bridgeport, many of the best two-bedroom corner units are available, according to Lent.

“We saved some of the best units for last, with a variety of plans to suit any buyer,” Lent said.

Pre-construction prices at the development range from $196,900 to $287,900 for condos with one bedrooms, one bedroom plus den or two bedrooms.

Units have private balconies or terraces, ceramic baths, GE appliances, red oak floors, spiral ductwork, ceiling heights of 10 feet and many skyline views. Designed by architects FitzGerald & Associates, the four-story building features a brick and limestone façade and a lobby with a closed-circuit TV security system.

Occupancy of the first residences is scheduled for early 2006, Lerman said.
