A townhome project is underway off Cheshire Bridge Road that developers say will introduce the most cutting-edge new residential options in the Woodland Hills area.

Called Avenue Hills, the 22-unit townhouse venture from Southcrest Homes broke ground six weeks ago, according to Mike Toltzis of SET Real Estate Group, a Compass affiliate who’s marketing the project.  

The site has claimed a corner where Lenox Road meets Woodland Avenue in the Lindridge-Martin Manor neighborhood, near attractions such as Taverna Plaka on Cheshire Bridge Road, which remains partially closed for bridge repairs.

The area is heavy with older, low-rise apartment communities, but newer living options that aren’t single-family homes remain scant. With prices beginning in the low $400,000s, Toltzis described the TSW-designed townhomes as being both contemporary and affordable for the area.

Sizes will range between 1,400 and 1,550 square feet. Each home will have two bedrooms, two and ½ bathrooms, and a two-car, tandem garage.

“The development is directly next to the hot Woodland Hills neighborhood, which makes it very attractive to homebuyers,” Toltzis wrote in an email. “It’s extremely hard to find anything new in this area with a price tag in the $400,000s.”

The project’s floorplans, according to marketing materials, are designed to be both functional and flexible, with the second bedroom space meant to serve as a home office, nursery for growing families, or extra space.

It continues the trend of building smaller, two-bedroom townhomes—an alternative to intown condos—spotted recently in Grant Park, Home Park (The Interlock), and Summerhill, among other locations.

The Avenue Hills project is scheduled to deliver this summer or fall, according to its marketing team.
