The development team behind the planned 1Brevard condo tower uptown opened their sales office to brokers Wednesday evening, touting the high-end finishes and luxury amenities planned to lure wealthy buyers.

The building, at Fourth and Brevard streets, would be the first condo tower built uptown since the recession. So far, three units are under contract and another five sales are under legal review, said T.J. Larsen, director of sales for the project.

With starting prices ranging from $400,000 to more than $1.8 million, the condos aren’t cheap. Amenities such as one parking space per bedroom, two decks with a pool and outdoor seating areas, event space, concierge service, a dog lawn, a McColl Center for Visual Arts gallery on the ground floor and luxurious finishes are meant to lure empty-nesters, international buyers and people who are currently renting upscale apartments in buildings like Element and The Vue.

Units will range from 1- to 3-bedroom floor plans or penthouses. The size will range from 687 square feet to 3,197 square feet, and the developers are hoping to complete the tower in late 2017. The tower is being planned by Boston-based Greg Rudolph of RTG Holdings and Robert Gunn of Gunn Financial.

At the sales center at Trade and Brevard streets, some of the interior finishes and design options were on display. The cabinets are European-style, toilets come with environmentally sensitive two-flush strength options, induction stovetops and deep sinks are available for foodies and the floors are designed to emit little or no irritating, volatile compounds. The Design Group is offering customized interiors for prospective buyers.

So, what do you think? Will you be buying a condo at 1Brevard anytime soon?
