Swanson Avenue will soon see more condos popping up.
The Riverwalk condo project received preliminary approval Wednesday by the Lake Havasu City Planning and Zoning Commission. Adjacent to the Pima Wash and across from Wings Loop, the new residential units will be located at 2042 Swanson Avenue.
Riverwalk will feature 12 to 13 residential units in a townhouse design, with a 30-foot deep garage at the bottom of each unit and two additional levels above. The second level will include living space, such as the kitchen, master bedroom and living room, and the third level will include a loft and a half-bath.
This project is part of Built Well Construction’s Tiny Homes Collection. Rachael Atkinson, owner of Destination Havasu, explained that this collection is geared toward a younger generation of homebuyers and those searching for more affordable options.
“We want to bring back traditional affordable housing to Havasu,” she said. For newly married couples or perhaps young families, these homes allow for affordability and room to grow and stay awhile, as an example.
It wasn’t immediately clear how much the condos would sell for.
Construction is expected to begin quickly after the foundations for Esperanza Condos are laid, which is a project similar to Riverwalk on Lake Havasu Avenue. “You’ll notice that everything will move pretty quickly for Riverwalk,” Atkinson said.
This collection is constantly evolving, Atkinson said. “We love to hear the public’s input and use that to make the next project even better.” Places like these are “desperately needed” in Havasu, she said.
The building plans are currently under review, and the project sits on about half an acre.
