For folks that don’t regularly visit Target you probably haven’t seen the explosion of building that has been going on. I snapped a photo when I was at Target yesterday to pick up some stuff for the family. Yesterday afternoon there were a lot of people there and a lot of unhappy babies at Target. But anyway, here’s what you will see when you visit:
When the wood frames were first being thrown up, I thought this was going to be the multi-family units because I hadn’t noticed how far set back the units were until someone on Twitter pointed it out. Turns out these are going to be the single family houses which front the large green space that borders 5th street. Right now in lieu of the green space there is a parking lot because they’re probably going to have the model homes available and so they want easy parking that is not the Target parking lot.
Eventually though, that parking lot will be converted into an open green space which should be nice. And I guess I should have realized that the first homes that would be for sale would have been the single family homes. I believe the rendering on this page is supposed to be the front of the unit from the view of the green space. You can see the floor plans here and apparently the prices are being estimated at starting in the $700,000. Personally, I like the unit with the loft on the third floor which would be a good study/play room for the kids. Not that I’m planning on moving again, I’m just saying that I would probably opt for Residence Three if I had to choose. I’m happy that they didn’t pick silly names for the actual units themselves, although the name of the development: Cadence at Alameda Landing is all kinds of cringeworthy.
If you lean more toward the multifamily housing, you can check out equally eye roll worthy Linear at Alameda Landing this is kind of a cool graphic which shows how the building is laid out including which units are duplicated so which ones they won’t provide a model home for. No need to have two model homes for the same unit:
Floor plans as well available here. Residence One is interesting because it’s the only single story residence which will be good for folks aging in place that may not want to go up and down stairs.
