A potential buyer at 45 Province, the new luxury high-rise under construction in the Ladder District, made a visit to the sales office, this weekend.
What’d he think?
All in all, though it looks like worthy competition for the Ritz.
Other comments he made:
[I]t seems like it could be a really nice full-service building. The finish level is impressive, and unlike the Millenium properties (Residences at the Ritz and One Charles), which are fairly conservative looking, they’ve taken some chances and gone with a very contemporary feel – glass and quartzite countertops, island kitchens, Italian cabinets, bamboo floors, etc.
There are about 125 floor plans for the 145 apartments, so not a lot of repetition …
The parking is valet-only (boo), but is NOT Central Parking (yay). They’re aiming for an 8-minute car delivery time, which would be very impressive if achievable …
There will be a two-level restaurant by Some Famous Restaurant Guy on the first floor, and a four-season half-indoor half-outdoor pool on the roof, as well as a roof deck. There’s a library/lounge/the usual on the second floor.
