Bought A Condo -- Celadon Greenway

We've bought a condo! Actually, we put a deposit down on it a few months ago, but things were a little dicey after the Microsoft shake up. Everything has leveled off, i.e. the new job is going swimmingly and we're forging ahead.

There is one issue with our new purchase: They haven't been built yet. Actually they just broke ground about 2 weeks ago, and construction is expected to to complete sometime next Spring so we're in full blown hurry up and wait mode. The development itself is extremely cool: Enter Celadon Greenway. I've been living in the middle of uptown Charlotte now for about 7 years; this will be the segway to our transition to just outside center city...a whopping .5 miles from where we live now. The main goal of this building project is being very eco-friendly. If everything goes as the developer plans, we'll be one of the first LEED certified residential complexes in the entire country. Read more about their goals here. Picture time:

This is a CG mockup of the development. There are 24 condos; ours is the 5th unit if you start counting them from the lower left hand side going clockwise (the end unit at the top of the bottom left structure). More general pictures are located here 

This is our specific floor plan. It'll be right at 1600 sq ft, and I've already laid claim to the media room, which will be known as the geek room going forward. We also got lucky and got an end unit...our side windows will face due west, so the sunsets will be nice, plus it'll be good and dark in the mornings (not a morning person).

As is to be expected we're beyond stoked. Eight months and counting.

With all the delays, have they provided you a new closing date?

Congrats with the purchase of your new condo. I have watched the construction of these homes and hope that once I'm established in my career, I will be awarded with the opportunity to purchase one myself. This is so my style. You are very blessed!
