Doylestown North Main condos near completion


The transformation of the former Bucks County library at 50 N. Main St. in the heart of Doylestown Borough into six luxury condominiums is looking toward a November completion, according to its Realtors.
Aptly named The Residences at 50 North Main, the development boasts a blend of original brick and wood from the building’s earlier life, with new elements of steel and concrete.
Designed by Doylestown-based architect Ralph Fey, the condominiums range from a 2,950-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-and- a- half bath penthouse to two-bedroom units. The penthouse, according to the project’s advertising, is being offered for $2.5 million, while $1.2 million to $1.65 million is being asked for the smaller condos.
Floor-to-ceiling windows, with panoramic views of the borough and beyond, are also featured, as are covered, heated garages. Two homes have rooftop terraces, said Chris Preston, the project’s listing agent with Kurfiss-Sotheby’s. Elevators are also part of the design.

The Residences has 19 to 20, designated, off-street parking spaces, said Preston.
The project’s first floor, 5000-square-foot commercial space is expected to include a wine bar and “high-end restaurant,” Preston said.
A number of other condominium and apartment projects are either underway or being planned in the borough, including units further north on Main Street and a 200-plus project at 333 North Broad Street.
