Four new $1.5 million townhomes are coming to Lexington, just a short walk from Rupp Arena, and I want one.
The West High Park development will begin construction next month at West High and Jefferson beside Rupp, and though all four properties have already been claimed, I’m not giving up on getting one.
The money I would save on parking at UK games would pay the mortgage, not to mention all the money saved on Ubers downtown on the weekends.
The development, called West High Park, is on a lot that has been vacant since the circa 1818 Watt-Saunier house burned 23 years ago. The site overlooks the Lexington Center’s Cox Street parking lot, which is planned for redevelopment into an expanded Lexington Center and Town Branch Commons park.
“I’ve been working on this for a long time,” said Cheek, who for 25 years has lived across the street in a Victorian home that he and his wife, Fran Taylor, restored. His office is next door.
The 3,000-square-foot townhouses will include first-floor, rear-entry garages and three stories of living space fronting High Street. The limestone-clad exteriors will resemble traditional European architecture.
The base price for each unit is $1.3 million to $1.6 million, with the price rising depending on upgrades. Buyers can customize the three- or four-bedroom interiors, and 800-square-foot terraces on the top floor of each unit.
So who wants to go halfsies?
Any by halfsies I mean you buy it and I’ll cook and pick up the monthly Netflix bill.
