Next on my tour was a stop at the Belle Sherman Cottages to make a progress report.

With four homes complete (Lots 1, 7, 8, and 14), one under construction (Lot 2), and one in site prep (Lot 19), the 29-unit development (19 homes, 10 townhouses) is beginning to resemble a settled neighborhood from a few very select angles.

103 Walnut Street (Lot 2) is currently underway, and will be completed in the next couple weeks. Only three of the five styles are represented so far, the Victorian and Craftsman-style farmhouses have yet to be built.

Lot 19 is tucked in the sharply-angled northern corner of the parcel, necessitating Agora LLC to insert the road extension. This extension is also where the townhouses will be built, although I’m not sure when they will start construction on those (i.e. what the sales thresholds are). Several lots are listed for sale with local RE agencies.

As noted at Ithaca Builds, these homes are built using modular pieces, which when done right can result in a quick turnaround from prep to construction to completion. It is likely the bungalow slated for Lot 19 will be completed by early fall, just as construction season starts to slow down in Ithaca.
