The long planned second phase of the Potomac Renaissance Condominiums in Colonial Beach began building upward this week with the arrival of a heavy industrial crane and the careful lifting and installation of pre-built modular units.
The first 28-unit phase of the luxury condos on Taylor Street along the Potomac River waterfront was constructed in 2006, and included two- and three-bedroom units along with first-floor commercial space and a parking garage. Northern Virginia businessman Carleton Phillips bought the project last year and immediately launched plans for a second five-story building on North Irving Avenue.
Phillips, who owns the Prince William Marina in Woodbridge, Va., was on hand this week as the crane lifted a dozen of the sturdy modular units into place on the new building’s second floor. When completed, the new building will have 24 two-bedroom condos with balconies overlooking Colonial Beach.
Like the first building, the new building with feature an owner’s suite with a luxury bath, available garage space and fully-equipped kitchens with granite counter tops, dishwasher, range and microwave. Also like the first building, the new building will have an elevator and stairs and will feature high speed internet and cable connections.
The 48 modular units being installed as the new building goes upward were built by Modukraf Homes of Rocky Mount, Va. Modukraf is one of the largest pre-built home manufacturers in the nation and has been building units for homes and commercial building for more than 40 years.
A block from the Potomac River waterfront, the new building will provide easy access to the Boardwalk and river, as well as the many restaurants and shops nearby.
