Fifteen Townhomes Sold But We Have More

The first fifteen townhomes have been completed and sold. Only two more townhomes along the edge of the water will be built. The Four-Townhome Building between Shore Drive and Water Street is currently available for viewing and purchase. This Four-Townhome Building has been built as a completed townhome with all the finishing work according the the plans and specs. Including these townhomes, a total of 30 more townhomes and condominiums is anticipated to be under construction during the next 1 to 3 years.

Construction Specifications

This information about the construction specifications relates specifically to 2408 and 2410 Water Street.

These two townhomes occupy the final lot on Lake Superior and mark the final phase of our shore development at The Ledges. This building is also next to a “park area” on the east. These townhomes are currently being constructed on a new street called Shore Drive and Water Street in Eastern Duluth within walking distance on the Lakewalk to Downtown Duluth, Canal Park, theaters, dining and entertainment.

The townhome as seen from Shore Drive is a brick home, featuring Cedarwood Modular provided by Ochs Brick Company. For low maintenance, we have chosen a high-grade vinyl shake on the upper part of the townhome and a cultured stone – on the lake side to match the shoreline. There are cast sandstone pillars on the Shore Drive side. The windows are top-grade Marvin double-glazed Low E. The 2-car attached garage is heated by in-floor radiant heat.

The driveways are assorted-sized concrete paver bricks with a poured concrete perimeter edging as an accent. The townhomes are landscaped.

At the point that the closing will take place, the townhome will be fully complete from the exterior with the interior available for your personal taste.
There are unique and varying roof lines, featuring composite shingles called Certainteed Centennial Slate. The varying roof structure creates interesting interior ceiling heights generally in the range of 9’4” on the main level – except for the foyers, front bedrooms, and attached garages. The lower level ceiling eight is generally in the 9’0” range. There is a walk-out lower level to the lake.
Prior to closing, the outside lighting will be complete. There will be outside hose bibs. The garage door opener will be operational, and the main electric panel will be connected to the townhome. There will be a 200 amp service. Receptacles will be installed and walls and ceilings will be wired for fixtures, telephone and cable. The heating, air conditioning, and ventilation system will be operational for both levels and the townhome will be ready ready for permanent electrical hook up. Each townhome will have a basic stairway to the lower level, which is shown in the plans and specs.

The heating system consists of in-slab heat for the lower level and there will be in-floor heat for the main level. The main level heating tubes will be embedded in gypcrete. There will be basic lighting at various locations. Water will be connected and metered and the sewer is connected. Hot and cold running water will be in the walls and stubbed to the location that the buyer has chosen for the bathrooms, kitchen, laundry and utility tub. Sewer will be stubbed to those locations. All of the insulation will be in, the partition walls and perimeter walls and ceilings sheetrocked. All of the walls and ceilings of the townhome and the garage will be taped and sanded and ready for priming and subsequent painting or wallpapering. There is “sheet rock return” to the windows which will have a window stool and apron. Corners are rounded. The floors will be clean and ready to accept carpeting, tile, wood or vinyl.

All that which is described above is known as the Phase I Construction. It is at the point that Phase I Construction is completed that the closing will occur. This is briefly described on the description sheet of Phase I and Phase II construction accompanying this. Additionally, it is described in greater detail in the Specifications Book which is available to Buyers.

Architectural Plans, Specification Book for Phase I Construction and Purchase Agreement Contract will govern the scope of Phase I work. This information may change without notice.
