A new townhome product will join the diverse mix of residential offerings at Grandview Yard

JUST ANNOUNCED! A new townhome product will join the diverse mix of residential offerings at Grandview Yard. Three independent, side-by-side buildings, called “The Junction” will be comprised of 20 two-story townhome residences with walk-ups along Bobcat Avenue. The buildings will feature a refined brick façade, elevated balconies, private garages, and market-leading interior finishes. Townhome residents will have access to The Yard Club, our residential amenity building and club house that featurs a resort style swimming pool and spa, fitness center, and community room, as well as our significant mix of retail, dining, and fitness offerings, First Avenue Park and green spaces.
