Via Brigham Yen
Pasadena blogger Brigham Yen provides an update on Granite Park, a 71-unit project on Granite Drive that's being developed by Vornado Realty Trust, a New York firm. Designed by local firm Van Tilburg, Banvard & Soderbergh, the same architect behind Blvd 6200 and numerous condo projects, Granite Park's design has a familiar staggered balcony look typical of Pasadena condos (as well as Santa Monica developments). It'll be finished in November and pricewise, units will fall in the pre-bust range: The condos start at $975,000 and will hit $2.5 million (square footage of the units ranges from 1,200-2,996 square feet). More via Yen's blog: "...Granite Park will apparently provide lush landscaping throughout the perimeter of the complex, making the area around it look nicer, which benefits everyone, and for the residents as well. In addition, Granite Dr. will be completely upgraded according to a construction notice I saw taped on the window of the former Madres restaurant."
