Anyone check out Fusion Sunnyvale? Burbed reader Petsmart Groomer found some of the marketing copy a little over the top:
Your life is a frenzy of color, flashing lights and movement. Facebook. Twitter. Email. Blogging. Texting. Meetings. Deadlines. Commuting.
Every day you take on the world. So, you deserve to come home to a beautiful place where you can recharge and relax, entertain and regroup. You want a neighborhood that is alive and vibrant with a fitness room to workout, places to mingle and space to hang out with your friends. You deserve soothing gardens to wander, a putting green to play and walking paths for your dog. It’s your time to do what you want, when you want, in your own community.
Introducing Fusion at Sunnyvale, a townhome community filled with everyday things that fuse your life. The homes have style and all the features you desire at a price you can afford. At the hub of the neighborhood, there is a fitness center, theater, Wi-Fi bar and fire pit. Everything that you need at the end of a long day.
So take on the world, then come home. To Fusion.
So let’s take a good look at this complex that’s such a wonderful place to call home, they show a chair instead of the “Spanish-Eclectic and contemporary architecture by KTGY architects.”
You have to click all the way down to BLOG to find out what the place looks like! And the name of the blog? “Short Fuse.” How clever! They already worked out that the properties would be selling shortly through their preferred lenders! (More coming shortly after the break!)
Not only that, 30 of the 228 Fusion townhomes are reserved for BMR (Below Market Rate) buyers. First-come, first-serve, so you’re probably too late. You didn’t want to deal with tandem parking in the garages anyway (in the four smallest plans, or 126 units), not to mention that there are 228 homes but only 203 unassigned parking spaces throughout the development.
This real estate site, Bay Area, Real Estate House Price and Mortgage Blog, mentioned that Fusion was originally Serrawood Sunnyvale, but John Laing Homes went bankrupt after building 14 homes, and another builder, O’Brien Homes, took over the project.
Ah, you ask about location, location, location? Glad you did! Right in the heart of Sunnyvale, or rather, right in the heart of Superfund at De Guigne Drive and Glen Valley Terrace, right off East Duane Avenue!
This might look okay, but let’s see the whole neighborhood.
What a lovely mélange of crapboxes and light industry!
Building a townhome community over a huge polluted groundwater plume caused by 4 different Superfund sites? Priceless. Literally. I can’t find any prices on the Fusion website, but this site, Bay Area Connect, copied the price sheet. And the HOA will start at $300 a month, and that’s without a swimming pool.
You might need F-U to spell Fusion, but I spell it another way. Gables End 3.0.
