PRISM – High Demand for New Homes in Eagle Rock Creates Advance Scheduling of Preview Tours

The Eastsider

December 1, 2015

Planet Home Living meets the demand of distinguished home-buyers looking for what is often impossible to find: a sleek, modern new home in an established, amenity-rich area. Designed by national award-winning firm KTGY Architecture + Planning, PRISM will offer fifteen single-family detached, new homes in Eagle Rock, just north of downtown Los Angeles. PRISM brings urban living to an already developed residential location walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores and more.

Due to the extremely popular Eagle Rock  location, named one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the nation by real estate brokerage firm Redfin, the interest has quickly climbed to over 500. To manage the demand when only fifteen homes are available, Planet Home Living has decided to begin scheduling VIP preview tours that will commence prior to the grand opening date.

“Preview tours start on January 4th but we urge everyone to call now as we expect the tours to be fully booked by the time January is upon us,” said Planet Home Living CEO Michael Marini. “Allowing folks to schedule early will hopefully make things easier for our priority list and those who have expressed interest over the past few months.”

Current pricing ranges from $645,000 up to $694,000. Two floor plan layouts are available offering three bedrooms in approximately 1,540 to 1,704 square feet of living space. All homes have large, open living areas and expansive kitchen islands perfect for indoor entertaining. Homes feature a small, private yard on the first level and a deck that expands the living area on the second level. A downstairs bedroom is perfect for guests or extended family and an attached, private two-car garage makes parking more convenient.

“All fifteen homes are now under construction and will be move in ready starting February 2016,” said Planet Home Living COO David French. “We urge serious shoppers to buy now in time to pick out their finishes.”

Planet Home Living collaborated with KTGY Architecture + Planning to achieve its modern design and urban-style living. The development was built under the Los Angeles Small Lot Ordinance and homes, while detached, are only approximately eight inches apart. This creates fee-simple ownership rather than condo air space ownership, avoiding costly HOAs and providing additional FHA loan program opportunities that can make home ownership attainable. Planet Home Living and KTGY have more than 70 homes in various stages of design and construction under the Los Angeles Small Lot Ordinance.

“Planet Home Living is a forward-thinking homebuilder that understands the complexities of urban infill development and contextual design principles as well as the needs and lifestyles of today’s buyers who want to own a single-family home and live in an urban, amenity-rich, walkable, established neighborhood,” said KTGY Principal Alan Scales, AIA.

PRISM is also located less than one mile from Occidental College and is just minutes away from the Los Angeles River Greenway Trail and Ernest E. Debs Regional Park – ideal for outdoor activities and adventures.
