Brix flatsSix months ago I reviewed the Brix lofts (on 10th Avenue).  This week, I had the chance to tour the completed condos on the Broadway side.

The building does not have a ton of amenities, mainly the roof top deck, central courtyard and two lobbies.  For those who want to economize on HOA and price, this will be welcome news. For those who are looking for lots of building bells and whistles, this may not be your kind of condo.  Brix has recently reduced prices on some of their homes.

The overall feel of the building is quite pleasant, especially the central courtyard.  It is surprisingly quiet given that Broadway is just on the other side of the building.  Unfortunately for Brix, a 6 story apartment building has started their construction right across the street and this will block most of the west facing views.

The two floor plans I found most interesting during the tour are the open one bedroom plus den and two bedroom homes on the north side of the building.  In a typical open one bedroom floor plan, closet space is usually small or limited.  In this floor plan, there is a very good sized walk-in closet right across from the bedroom.  The den is close to the living area but not taking up the living room space.  There is also a little entry area before you see the rest of the home.  No views to speak due to the new apartment building across the street.   

As for the two bedroom floor plan, #410 came across as the most appealing.  The two bedrooms are separated by the living room.  The kitchen is well laid out with an island.  There are almost floor to ceiling windows in the living area.  Layout is very open and efficient.

There are a few nice features in the Broadway homes.  You will find a rain shower and either a single or double under-mounted sink in the bathroom.  In a couple of the two bedroom homes, there is a walk-in shower.  In most homes, the kitchen will either have a stationary or movable island.  The only thing that I am not really fond in some of the open one bedroom homes is the bathroom. They are only accessible from the bedroom (less privacy when you have guest visiting).

Overall, the Broadway condos are more contemporary in design than their town home/ lofts counterparts on 10th Ave.  The level of finishes are of similar quality.
