Visit to Brix

By October 7, 2006

Brix

Today I went and visited Brix, and no I wasn’t one of the people camped out in lawn chairs at 8am (I was off sailing today).

Here are some misc notes:

  • Architect is Mithun
  • The 10th building is wood frame construction
  • The Broadway building is steel stud construction
  • The floor IS NOT concrete slab which I found surprising
  • Only the 2 story townhomes/lofts get exposed beam ceilings
  • Only 2 finish packages available
  • The upgrade list is coming but will have items like: hardwood throughout, range hood, rain showerheads, W/D upgrade to Whirlpool
  • HOA’s are going to be less than $0.50/square foot
  • Amenities: Big lobby, roof top deck
  • The ceiling for the flats on the Broadway side are 8’8″
  • They are not marketing views from any units because any views that there might be will likely go away when the other side of the street is developed
  • Though they are marketing the neighborhood
  • They’ve signed on a local coffee shop as a tenant and are looking for more tenants. They will not be signing a nightclub
  • There’s 1 parking spot per unit. An extra spot is going to be $20-25k
  • Units comes with storage
  • The kitchens have movable islands or carts

My impressions: I don’t like the faucet line they’re using (the latest from Delta), I don’t like their engineered hardwoods, I don’t like a lot of their cabinetry and I don’t like how far north this project is on Broadway. I also don’t like that they don’t have any west facing lofts. But I do like their larger open one bedroom floor plans. While initally I thought I’d be excited about this project I’m going to give it a pass.

Here are the floor plans:
