First Resale at the Modern

Following the last closing at the Modern, a 25-unit condo development that opened in 2007, that took place in August 2008, Buyer are only now seeing the first resale condo available for sale in the building.  Unit 203, a 1,000 square foot one-bedroom one-bathroom unit was listed for sale in late January 2009, and recently underwent a $10,000 price reduction, bringing its list price to $479,000 (approximately $479 per square foot).

The unit is well equipped, with some additional upgrades, including a Bosch washer / dryer, custom Hunter Douglas blinds, custom closet system, small private terrace, and one garage parking space.  The Seller is offering six months of condo fees as an incentive to purchase, which equates to a $1,455 credit at the closing table.

Perhaps the one negative aspect to the south-facing unit (see floorplan 147 KB PDF) is that it overlooks the adjacent gas station.  The building itself is elevator-served, has a large common roofdeck, and there are still plans on the table to do a second phase of the development sometime in the future.
