Condos on Lincoln St.


Subject: Condominium development on Lincoln Street.


What they said then:

In July 2006, The BBJ reported that Canadian developer Jim Laing had just rezoned property at 950 Lincoln St., the site of the former China One Buffet, and was in the process of purchasing the land for a mixed-use development.

The development would include three buildings with 55 residential condo units and 3,560 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. The residential units would include a mix of studios, lofts and townhouses.


What they say now:

Laing and his partner, Tim Ankenman, who is also the project’s architect, purchased the site and moved forward with permitting in June 2007. Since then, local developer Rick Westerop has signed on as a partner and will build and market the condos with his company, West-Lind Construction.

Called The Edge, the project will likely break ground this month, said marketing and sales representative Kara DiGregorio. Since July 2006, the plans have only slightly changed to include covered parking and minor floor-plan adjustments. Loft and studio condos from 400 to 1,000 square feet will go on sale next spring and will start in the low $100,000 price range, DiGregorio said.

The goal is to keep the condos affordable and market them to a diverse mix of buyers, including first-time homebuyers and parents of students. DiGregorio said she expects the project to be ready for occupancy a year from now.
