When we last checked in on the Shot Tower Estates project at 112 Christian St., five enormous homes were nearly finished, with four more to follow. Remember, the huge parcel was home to a large one-story garage and some office space for the Scandinavian Shipping Supply Company. Before that, it functioned as the Royal Norwegian Honorary Consulate. We first brought the property to your attention several years ago, noting that the property had gone went under agreement after two weeks on the market.
If you pass by today, you'll see that the second phase of the project is very much underway, with four big homes now framed out on Christian Street. Those other five homes are hiding behind the new ones, accessible via a drive-aisle.
At this point, from what we can tell, one home has sold and another is under agreement. Two of the homes in the back, boasting 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and 4,300 sqft of interior space, are now listed for sale at an asking price of $1.275M. The homes in the front aren't yet listed, but we'd guess they'll go for a higher price since they'll each have two-car garages.
We cover so many projects and aren't typically able to get a look inside of new homes, but we'll cross our fingers and hope we can get a tour of one of these units. With the Mega Millions jackpot up to over $300M, it's not crazy to dream about being able to afford one of 'em. Hey, 1 out of 259 million is still a chance!
