Glad I could help. I hadn't looked on their website in a while until I went to go verify I had the right url to post here and I think it said they only have a couple of units left.

On that note, we loved the design but decided to pass on them when we were first looking at homes in Charlotte because the area was not what we were looking for. Our impression was that the people who buy there will be "urban pioneers" of a sort. It may be a good investment being in one of the early developments in neighborhood that has the potential to undergo some significant urban renewal, but this development does stand out in its neighborhood. Its in Wesley Heights (between Morehead Street and the 4th Street Extension) - so someone with a better knowledge of the city can probably give you the run down on that area - we pretty much based our opinion on what we saw driving around, as opposed to doing a significant amount of research - it just didn't feel like the right neighborhood for us.

Default Celadon

I've spoken with the developer, and units are $315K-$475k. He said the more expensive ones face the greenway and have a great view of wooded/forested land, are 3br/3.5 baths and about 2,000 sq. ft. They are the ones shown at www.tourceladon.com He said they have one of these left. The smaller ~1,400 sq. ft. units are 2br/2.5 baths, and one of these has a downtown view-the garages on these are a little bigger, and the extra parking space is fully covered rather than partially (all units have an enclosed 1-car garage). HOA dues average $150/month depending on size of unit. He said the units are Energy Star certified and LEED certification is forthcoming. The eneryg star rating has an automatic 5% reduction in electricity rates apparently. He's sending me the energy information from the 3rd party energy rater who inspected the condos for Energy Star--apparently the total energy savings is 30-40% due to the insulation, etc. Looking forward to checking them out.

Just bought a condo at Celadon! After looking at Southborough, Met Terraces, Met Lofts, Avenue, Trademark, and even the Vue, I couldn't find anything that even came close in terms of modern architecture, and nothing at all that was green. I even had my realtor show me a condo at the Trust, and the finishes and features at Celadon were comparable--dual flush toilets, high-end appliances, solid core doors, etc. etc., for less than half the price.

While I was in the process of buying, I got to meet the builder and a lot of the other owners. Very diverse and interesting neighbors. Looking forward to moving.

There was an article in today's Charlotte Business Journal about the developers and the project, and how the green features contributed to their sell-through.
