Beazer Launches Key’s Overlook, 53 New Townhomes in Locust Point

| October 3, 2013 | 7 Comments

Last night at Silo Point’s Sky Lounge on the 19th floor, Beazer Homes held an open house to kick off Key’s Overlook, a community of 53 new-construction townhomes surrounding Silo Point in Locust Point. The homes are to be constructed on two large lots surrounding Silo Point – 25 to the northwest adjacent to Clement St. and 28 to the southeast adjacent to Andre St.

Land development of the property is expected to begin in the next three to four weeks and Beazer is hoping to begin construction on the first phase of the homes on the southeast parcel in December. The second phase of homes on the northwest parcel will begin after an existing building is demolished.

The first deliveries are expected in mid-2014.

The homes will start in the high $400,000s and will range in price based on location and add-ons. Each 2,003 sq. ft. home will feature three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two powder rooms, a bonus room, a sky den, a two-car garage, a second-story back deck, and a roof deck.

The main floor of the homes feature a bonus room, powder room and garage; the second floor features the dining room, kitchen, family room, and a powder room; the third floor features the master bedroom and bath, as well as two additional bedrooms and a full bath; and the fourth floor features the sky den and a large roof top deck.

The homes will exceed ENERGY STAR requirements and will feature hardwood floors, nine- and ten-foot ceilings, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, 42″ maple cabinets and many customizable features. The exterior will consist of brick, Dryvit and weather board siding.

Beazer told that four home sites are currently being held by perspective buyers.

    The interest level has been so great for these new townhomes. Beazer is thrilled to be in Locust Point!

      but locust point is not thrilled ……last thing LP needs is more houses and more people.

        Wrong. LP is thrilled. This is exactly what the community needs. Gentrification can be very positive. Gentrification happens when
        wealthier people acquire property in low income neighborhoods and
        working class communities. It happens in those areas where a young
        couple can afford to buy their first house when better areas are too
        costly. They repair it, improve it, clean up the property and by doing
        so, begin to turn LPs depressed areas around. It happens when people with
        little money but willing to work hard buy old broken down houses,
        improve them, bring them up to code and create attractive living and
        commercial spaces that bring new people and new money to the neighborhood. These types of projects gradually improve the area, help
        to decrease crime and increase property values, help to eliminate slums
        and clean up decrepit buildings and blighted lots (see Cooksie St and Cuba/Andre St) with diseased feral cats; dump trucks filled with garbage and vagrants sleeping in the cab. We need folks with interest in improving the community. Bring it on.

          all neighborhoods have issues…. Gentrification is wrong… driving people out with high taxes is wrong. some of these new people, I believe you said wealthier… are snobs. When I walk in the neighborhood and pass someone on the street I say hi or nice day I expect a response… guess they are afraid living in such a bad area of the city…good lord…

        Not thrilled at all. I’m all for improvement of the neighborhood, but not with sterile, cookie-cutter, overpriced, HOA-burdened monstrosities. And I wonder how long it will take the residents to start complaining about train noise after moving into their half-million-dollar homes built practically on top of the train tracks? Not to mention that half the new “luxury” properties one street away are already under foreclosure!

        Lots of people are moving into the neighborhood and buying individual homes, improving them, and contributing to the neighborhood’s charm. Key’s Overlook is utterly lacking in character and a total step in the wrong direction.
