Construction to Start Soon on 25 For-Sale Townhomes in Italian Village
The white-hot Italian Village real estate market will soon see another 25 for-sale units, with construction scheduled to start in June on 25 Jeffrey Park. The new development, which has been brought before the Italian Village Commission multiple times over the course of the last year, will occupy a one-acre section of land between Auden and Neruda avenues, west of North Sixth Street.
That puts it behind a row of townhomes on North Fourth Street that were built in 2006 as an early phase of the failed Jeffrey Place development. It will be surrounded in every other direction by Wagnebrenner Development’s Jeffrey Park development, phase one of which is currently under construction.
Short North-based developer Chad Seiber has controlled the parcel since 2014. His Mulberry Design+Build is serving as the developer and general contractor for the new townhomes. An earlier proposal for the land called for single-family homes, but the commission had expressed concerns about an interior courtyard that required multiple curb cuts for access.
Anthony DeWitt, Public Relations Director for Mulberry, said that the new units will range from two- to three-bedrooms and start in the mid-400’s. Sales are scheduled to start in early June, coinciding more or less with the start of construction. DeWitt said they were estimating an 18-24 month timeline for build-out.
Juliet Bullock Architects designed the project, with Spencer Design Associates doing the interiors. Michael Casey of RE/MAX Connection will be marketing and selling the units.
