118 — Condos on Munjoy Hill
118 on Munjoy Hill is bringing something new to the Portland condominium scene. One level living, two-three bedrooms, huge windows and high ceilings that provide a sense of volume, and private outdoor decks right off of the open living space. The 12 condos are designed to give you the chance to create the urban home that suits your lifestyle.
Imagine expansive views of Casco Bay and the Portland skyline. 118 is at the crest of Munjoy Hill, one block from the Portland Observatory.
Enjoy easy access to urban amenities. Neighborhood hot spots such as Hilltop Coffee, Rosemont Market, Blue Spoon and Front Room restaurants are just outside your door. Portland’s Eastern Promenade Park is a stone’s throw away. And the Old Port, Arts District, and Back Cove are an easy stroll.
All 12 condos are sold (one is the home of the developers) and move ins began in Spring of 2015. Gorham Savings Bank and Urban Dwellings move into the two retail spaces in June and July 2015.
10 Features that make 118 unique
- Flats. Each condominium is on one level, and are designed to flow intuitively from one living area to the next. Flats “live” better than multi-level homes, offering more usable space with less square footage.
- Light. Soaring ceilings-10 feet plus in many areas-create a voluminous sense of space and allow design features such as display shelves above “capped” rooms and raised dens looking over the open living space to the views beyond.
- Views. Look out at the vibrant neighborhood, the harbor, and the Portland skyline from huge energy-efficient glass windows.
- Generous outdoor decks. Enjoy drinks and dinner with friends. Let your green thumb flourish growing herbs and other plants.
- “Lock it and leave” living. 118 is small enough to feel personal and intimate but large enough to be professionally managed.
- Designed for the details of daily life. Every unit has a mudroom for damp clothing and gear, a laundry with space to fold, a good-sized pantry, a room to work…or work out.
- Customize your living space. Some of us cook and entertain. Some of us collect art, or books or wine. Some of us have kids, grand kids or pets. Some of us like to watch movies on a big screen with surround sound. 118 layouts are adaptable to your particular interests and pastimes. Create the environment that expresses who you are and reflects your lifestyle.
- Indoor parking. One space per unit with the option of a second spot.
- Room for “stuff.” Large closets in each unit and storage in the building for bikes, kayaks and off season items.
- Forward-thinking building materials and techniques. 118 features state-of-the-art energy efficiency and a level of construction that maximizes sound reduction.
