A new townhouse project is under construction west of uptown, with modern-styled units starting in the $300,000s.

Called Uptown West, the development by Hopper Communities will total 74 townhouses. Developer Bart Hopper said the first units should be finished in late 2018, and pre-sales are open now.

“We really like having that rooftop terrace as an option,” said Hopper. “It’s a more contemporary, modern feel to it.”

The 4.2-acre site is at Duckworth Avenue and Wesley Heights Way. Real estate records show Hopper Communities paid just over $2 million for the site, which was formerly owned by a church known for its “Jesus Saves” sign atop the building.

The townhouses are planned to be two- and three-bedroom units, ranging in size from 1,311 to 2,127 square feet. The smaller units will start in the low $300,000s, and the larger ones will start in the low $400,000s. My Townhome Realty is handling sales at the community.

Amenities include a fenced dog park, and the developers are also pitching the area’s walkability and proximity to uptown as prime selling points (The first five buyers will win a year’s worth of beer from nearby Blue Blaze Brewing, Hopper said). Inside the townhouses, the units will include two-car garages, hardwood floors, quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances.

Hopper has carved out a niche developing townhouses, including at SouthPoint in South End and Grandin Heights, at Grandin Road and West Fourth Street.
