With a development as huge as Langtree at the Lake one might wonder whether they are on target considering our current, challenging national economy let alone the slow down of real estate sales in the greater Lake Norman communities.
While the development truly is a living and evolving project, the overall plans are still intact. The first building, which is slated to be ready for their new homeowners in the Fall 2009, has been redesigned based upon the feedback from potential buyers. The new design will truly take full advantage of the Lake Norman views and maximize them for every condo unit. The building itself is smaller but some of the condominiums facing the lake have been expanded. The corner units that my clients were interested in ranged in price from $1,200,000 to about $1,600,000 depending on which of the 5 floors it is located. (The higher the unit the better the views!)
They have also made substantial progress on commitments from some wonderful restaurants, an upscale market, the 4-star hotel and even auxiliary services like gas stations, pharmacy and such.
Hearing about the latest news as well as seeing the newest renderings reminded me about how truly spectacular this project is. They are creating an entire, almost self-sufficient, luxury community with not just custom-built luxury residences, but an elegant yacht club, marina, and upscale commercial and retail.
And then there is the awesome technology. Their Crestron Audio/Video will enable all residents to:
- Monitor Security Cameras
- Contact the concierge service to have groceries delivered, laundry and dry cleaning picked up or delivered
- Check movie times
- Check the weather
- Make boat reservations (they plan to have a fleet of community boats available for rental to residents!)
- Lower your blinds
- Listen to multiple music items in different rooms (ie: ipod in one room, XM in another)
- Control lighting
Visiting their showroom is a great way to get a feel for just how remarkable this Lake Norman resort community will be. If you would like a complete package providing renderings, floorplans and extensive information about the condos themselves, drop me an email with your address or give me a call. Words can not describe it sufficiently!
