That new housing development you may have spotted near the exit for 95 North off Delaware avenue? It's Bridgeview, and the gated community of 75 rental town houses is nearing completion, asking $2,950 per month. The first units expect to become available on September 1st. All in all, they're pretty snazzy, and another indicator that the city is finally paying attention to our long-mistreated Delaware waterfront.
Bridgeview, located at Swanson and Catherine Streets, ostensibly extends Queen Village right to the river front on a formerly-unused plot of land. Each of the 75 units feature 3,000 square feet of living space, hardwood floors and recessed lighting, kitchens with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There's a master suite with dual walk-in closets, and the choice between a front patio or a landscaped yard. There's also dedicated parking for each of the three-bedroom, three-bath units. Amenities include a dog park, playground, and 'relaxation' park. Also - no need to borrow a mower. A professional maintenance crew takes care of the public areas as well as the front and back yards.
