Due to concerns from COVID-19, prospective buyers decreased in March and April, but traffic has since picked up in May and June, said John Delin, co-owner of Integrity Group, developer of the brownstone project.
“Homes are still available in the second and third units, and we’re excited about that. It’s been received so well,” Delin said. “People love that area and want to move downtown and take advantage of an urban lifestyle.”
Split between four total units, the brownstone homes are located near Oak Street and Crockett Street in downtown Roanoke. There are still 18 homes available for purchase ranging from the mid-$400,000s to the mid-$700,000s.
Homes vary between two and three stories, and all homes have at least three bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths.
According to Integrity Group co-owner Steve Delin, the first unit, comprising six residences, is complete, and the second unit, comprising eight residences, has a targeted completion date of September.
“There is a portion of the population that is not going out or that is being very cautious about going out, such as wearing face masks or even gloves,” Delin said. “Traffic slowed down, but it seems to be picking back up now.”
Construction on the third unit began this summer and should be complete during the first quarter of 2021, he said. The fourth and final unit is expected to be complete by the end of 2021.
“There’s people moving in, and housing is needed,” Delin said. “This is the lowest [number] of homes on the market ... in years.”
