Last week, we told you about a new home under construction on the 2200 block of Coral St. in East Kensington, with plans for a few more next door. Today, we can share news of some additional homes that we'll soon see rise a couple of blocks away. Just down the street from Erica's Sports Bar, two new homes and a duplex will soon be rising near the intersection of Coral & E. Letterly.
Developer Roman Guzvha bought the corner property last year, and is expected to break ground at the end of the month. The duplex he has planned for the site is already listed for sale, at a price of $450K. Each of the units will have three bedrooms, with two bathrooms in the lower unit and three in the upper unit. The project is subject to change, but should look something like this:
Next to the future duplex is a lot with no immediate plans that's been owned by the same investor since 2005. Next to that lot is a hole that recently appeared.
Mrcr2 LLC bought 2441-43 Coral St. at the end of last year, and will soon be building homes on the lots. Like the future duplex, the homes are also already listed for sale, with one of them already under contract for just under $300K. According to the listing, the homes will each have 1,850 sqft of living space, 3 bedrooms, and 2.5 bathrooms. It should be interesting to see how quickly the second home comes off the market. Also interesting should be what happens to the one-story garage next door.
It's almost a certainty that the garage wall was taken down by the guys building the homes next door. Could the garage have been built over the property line? Was there some structural problem that necessitated the removal of one of the exterior walls? Or is something else going on? Whatever the reason, it seems quite likely that the existing garage will soon get itself a new side wall. And a few new neighbors, to boot.
