A reader checked in, asking what’s up with a newly dug hole at 2221 Coral St., at the corner of E Fletcher St., in East Kensington. We’ve mentioned development in this immediate area before, referring to a large, half-built modular project around the corner on Dauphin St., as well as an eco-friendly single family home two doors away.
The hole in question
Perusing public record as we so often do, we discovered that this lot is owned by PS Property LLC. These are exactly the same people who built 2217 Coral St., which is partially visible in the photo above, on the right side. Here’s a better look.
Same builders as the corner
It seems that PS Property purchased both lots together, about three years ago. And now, finally, they’re building the second of their two homes on this block. We’re guessing that the new home will have similar green elements as the already built home, including improved insulation, low-VOC cabinets in the kitchen, high velocity air conditioning, dual flush toilets, energy efficient appliances, and more. We’ll also assume that the new home will have a similar 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom layout.
Though 2217 Coral St. was offered for sale for about six months (last at $274K), it was taken off the market in March. Hopefully, the developers will have an easier road to hoe selling the new home on the corner. And perhaps it will be a different color?
