The Lumina is growing up. Literally. As in, Lumina Rising.
We were the only real estate group invited to the groundbreaking for The Lumina, and it has been a pleasure watching the site grow from a parking lot into two towers and two mid-rise buildings.
As you can see from the above pictures, in the middle of August Tower B had made it to 14 stories plus a few under wraps (I believe the wrap at the top covers up about 3 floors, but if you’ve got more precise information I’d love it if you could leave a comment and let us know). By November 11, Lumina Tower B had risen to 27 visible stories plus those under wraps. How fast is Lumina rising?
In the 12 weeks (plus a few days) between the pictures I took on August 15 and the pictures I took of The Lumina on November 11 the Tower had risen by 13 stories. So, for the sake of simplicity we can say that Lumina is rising by roughly a floor a week on Tower B.
Given that Tower B will be the taller of the two towers, coming in at 42 stories, I would expect it to top out in the late February time frame, assuming there are no weather or other delays. Tower D will rise to 37 stories, and I’m going to go back and dig through the photo library for a similar post looking at the speed at which Tower D is rising, but I would expect it to top out by the end of the year.
Sales at Lumina so far have been in Plaza A and Tower D, which will be the first two buildings to be completed – look for a release of more homes in Plaza C and Tower B in early 2016. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to be in touch if you’d like to help understand what an investment at Lumina means given the surrounding buildings and neighborhood plans.
