North Hyde Park will soon have some Cuban flavor as new townhomes are built with the inspiration of the small country less than 100 miles south of Florida. The Las Azoteas townhomes will be located at 405 North Oregon Avenue.
“We came up with the name Las Azoteas because loosely translated it means rooftop, or rooftop terrace, which these townhomes have,” says Michael Mincberg, president of Sight Real Estate
. Sight teamed up with local entrepreneurs Renier and Michelle Gobea on the project. “I don’t know of any other townhome in Hyde Park that has a rooftop terrace, which is a shame because we live in Florida, and people should have the ability to enjoy some outdoor living space.”
There will be 39 units total when the project is completed at the end of 2016. Each unit is between 1,700-square-feet and 2,000-square-feet. There are two- and three-bedroom options, as well as one- or two-car attached garages.
“We wanted to provide ample living space for people who want to live in this part of town,” Mincberg says. “There is this urban renaissance going on, where people are moving back to the urban core, and North Hyde Park has more to offer when you look at other neighborhoods, such as the proximity to downtown, being within walking distance to great restaurants, even being zoned for Plant High School. People love that about North Hyde Park for the resale value, even if they don’t have kids.”
In addition to the location, Mincberg says he believes the townhomes will be a hit due to the price point, which will begin in the low $300,000s.
“It is very hard to find a product like this for a price point that low,” he says. “I think this is a product people are starving for, there is nothing like it in the area.”
