A few weeks ago news broke about a high rise coming to downtown Lafayette called the "Seven16 Lafayette Tower."

If all goes as planned, this new luxury development would be the tallest building in the city of Lafayette standing at 260 feet high.

Plans for the $140 million building measure in a 240,000 square feature and feature two 20-story high-rise towers that would definitely stand out.

As you can see in the above post, the building will feature a mix of commercial and residential opportunities. The first seven floors of each floor will feature parking garages and the eighth floor will feature a patio area (and likely an upscale restaurant), serving as somewhat of a divider from that point up to the 16th floor where commercial office space will fill each floor in between.

However, it's the higher floors that you have an opportunity to own right now. That's right, the condominiums have hit the market for "pre-sale" and the prices are sure on the "luxury" side.

The Gleason Group listed several condos for sale yesterday on the 15th and 19th floors. The lowest price condo up for grabs is listed at $599,000 and the most expensive is a cool $2,399,000.


The "cheapest" one is Unit 1502 and features one bedroom and one bath and 801 square feet of living area. To view the listing for this unit, click here.

The most expensive one is quite a bit larger and sits on the 19th floor (basically the highest floor considering that the 20th floor will likely be some sort of patio).

This premier condo has a total of 3,328 square feet of living area and features four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a wine cellar, movie theater room, wet bar, two private balconies, and more.

Below are the property details as listed on Realtor.com:
