First Impressions: 3208 Pierce Street

The new condominiums at 3208 Pierce Street were open Wednesday evening, and the crowds definitely indicated a high level of public curiosity. After all: luxury condos with views of IHOP to the south and the Pierce Street public parking garage to the north?

But, if you want new construction and modern, clean design within walking distance of Chestnut and Union, this is your building. Eleven of the 14 units were open (3 units are indicated as SOLD). The kitchens and bathrooms are beautiful with dark cabinetry and nice countertops. High ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows help these rather tight spaces seem bright and airy. All 2 bedroom units (plus the 1+den unti) are 2-levels, with laundry hook-ups (washer/dryer not included) usually well-positioned on the bedroom level. There is an underground garage with one deeded parking space for each unit.

So, all in all, 3208 Pierce does come across as a modern urban oasis. As long as you don’t open your windows if you face Lombard Street. Oh, or open the blinds if you face the Pierce Street Garage. Prices range from $749,000 to $1,199,000. Listed with Vanguard Properties,
