The blue-gray building at the northeast corner of Gay and 4th streets is the linchpin in developer Edwards Cos.’ Neighborhood Launch project. The structure has a mixture of residential styles, including three-story town houses, second-floor studios and garden-style units.
Now, the challenge for developer Edwards Cos. is to convince potential buyers that expectations for the rest of its Gay Street neighborhood will match the promise the first building has provided. It will take several years to complete the neighborhood, bounded by Long, 6th, Gay and 4th streets. The first phase will include about 40 condominiums ranging in price from about $150,000 to $660,000.
