The Lofts are two and three-story fee-simple homes, roughly 2,000sf in size, clustered around a Commons filled with native fruit and nut trees. Inherently durable exterior building materials provide a handsome visual backdrop to the lush landscape, which will be maintained by a Property Owner’s Association. A landscape sculpture will create an outdoor gathering space within the Commons for the residents and their guests. Living in a Tourmaline Loft means being surrounded by an extraordinary array of natural colors, shadows, sounds, creatures, smells and foods, all transforming with the change of seasons.
Tourmaline Urban Lofts are designed to appeal to a wide variety of people, from young professionals buying their first homes, to active retirees downsizing to move into the city, to at-home entrepreneurs. With tall ceilings, large windows, open floor plans, energy efficient systems and the ability to customize your home’s finishes and colors chosen from a range of environmentally friendly building materials, the Lofts are stylish, functional and inspiring places to call home. A list of features and amenities is provided below.
The location for this development is key to its success. Bentonville’s new civic institutions are garnering local and international acclaim, the crown jewel being the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Projects such as the Amazeum are nearing completion, and more are in the pipeline for future development. In and around these civic projects, private development is fueling new businesses, attracting new residents and tourists, strengthening public schools and other civic institutions, and giving rise to creative activities and events. Bentonville is fast becoming one of the most desirable places to live.
One of the four fastest-growing regional economies in the country, NWA has a low unemployment rate, a high per capita income, and a steadily increasing population. With limited existing residential buildings in Downtown Bentonville, demand for housing is strong. New homes are on the market for record short periods of time and sales prices are increasing by 10% annually.
Tourmaline Urban Lofts enters this strong market with a unique product: a collection of architect-designed homes, sited in harmony with the natural landscape and one another, located in one of the Downtown’s two up-and-coming “Experience Districts.”
