Building #4 Complete

The time has finally come, this Friday is move-in day! We will be welcoming the residents of the new 8-unit building to the L44 community. It has been a long process, but we are excited to wrap up construction and hand over the keys to our newest residents just in time for the holidays!

Building #4 has six 3-bedroom units with a 2-bedroom ranch unit located on each end of the building.

The completion of Building #4 puts us one step closer to Latitude 44 being finished. Once finished there will be a total of 8 buildings in the community. Next up will be Building #7, a 6-unit complex with all 3-bedroom units.  Construction is tentatively scheduled to be completed in Spring.  Even though construction is still in the preliminary stages we are accepting reservations and already have three of the six available units reserved.  So if you or someone you know is interested it is important to get your name on the list!

Once again, we want to extend a warm welcome to the newest residents of the Latitude 44 community. It is extremely exciting to watch this amazing community grow and we cannot wait for what the future holds!

43rd Annual Christmas Parade in Downtown Appleton

Mark Tuesday, November 26 on your calendar for Downtown Appleton’s 43rd Annual Christmas Parade. The event never disappoints and seems to outdo itself year after year. The Parade always has a theme, and this year it’s “A Storybook Christmas.” The parade will start at 6:20 p.m. on the corner of State Street and College Avenue.  It will continue east on College all the way to Drew Street.

This year’s parade is expected to have roughly 80 different units ranging from floats, decorated vehicles, marching bands, and even groups that feature animals. The event is the largest nighttime parade in the Midwest.  Last year, the parade saw nearly 80,000 spectators fill College Avenue and they are expecting a similar turnout again this year.  So if you want a good spot, it is best to head down early!

Following the parade (approximately 7:45 p.m) the City of Appleton will hold its annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in City Park. Enjoy Christmas carols sung by members of the Appleton East chorus, live reindeer, and Santa & Mrs. Claus handing out candy canes to the children.

Help bring in the holiday season with a magical night filled with holiday cheer!

Construction Update at L44

There has been a lot of progress made over at Latitude 44 these past couple of months. The pool has been completed but will not be open until next spring. However, the playground has been put in and is in the final stages of completion. Within the next couple of weeks we hope to have the playground open and ready to be used before it’s covered in snow! The weather has been cooling down and that means winter is right around the corner. One amenity that we are excited to put to use is the sledding hill, it will be great when the snow begins to fall and you can go sledding right in your own backyard!

Building #4 is coming along nicely. We are working inside and out to keep the building process moving forward. The move-in date has been pushed back to December 1st, but with continued hard work the building should be completed in no time. Building #4 is an 8-unit townhouse, with six 3-bedroom units and two 2-bedroom ranch units on the ends of the building. There is two 3-bedroom units and one 2-bedroom ranch unit available.

Latitude 44 is truly unique, it combines the best of both worlds with townhouse-style living in a apartment community setting.
