Plymouth, MI (PRWEB) June 3, 2004
A touch of history, a touch of class, and a touch of comfort will be experienced by visitors to the Daisy Square Grand Opening Celebration Saturday and Sunday, June 12-13.
Historical exhibits of the Daisy Air Rifle and open house viewings of Daisy Square lofts and town home models will be shown from 12 noon to 5 p.m. both days at the corner of Hamilton and Union in downtown Plymouth. The site is just east of Main Street and north of Penniman Avenue.
Daisy Square, an upscale residential community, is being developed at the site of the former Windmill Building and Daisy Air Rifle factory which produced the famous Red Ryder BB-gun for decades until the factory closed in the mid 1950Âs and moved to Rogers, Arkansas.
Information on the history and folklore of the Daisy Air Rifle will be shared by resident expert Jack Grant, a board member of the Plymouth Historical Society. Daisy memorabilia and museum exhibit items will also be available for viewing. There will be a BBQ with food, entertainment including local musicians and tours of the five available loft models and townhomes.
Joseph Freed Homes, developer of Daisy Square, preserved the original faÃ§ade of the Windmill Building that dates back to the 1800Âs. The planned community is on a 10-acre plus site that will include 56 loft condos and 101 town homes within walking distance of downtown Plymouth Â named one of Money Magazine's "Hottest Towns for 2004."
"Daisy Square is a dynamic blend of town homes and loft condominiums in a landscaped park setting within walking distance to downtown restaurants, Kellogg Park, entertainment and shops," says Jim Colella, Director of Sales and Marketing. "This planned community offers a variety of living options from loft condominiums to traditional one and two story town homes with park areas contributing to its pedestrian appeal."
The lofts, located in a 3-story building with underground heated parking for each unit, features 10-foot ceilings, granite countertops, appliances, floor to ceiling windows, and exposed ductwork in the true loft style. The lofts, popular with all ages from young single professionals to empty nesters, range in size from 984 to 1,579 square feet and in price from $180,000 to the mid-$300Âs.
The one, two and three story town homes are individually owned, maintenance free in a landscaped community setting. Features include brick or stone exteriors, bay windows, French doors, balconies, large patio decks, attached garage, and luxury master baths. The town homes range in size from 1,100 to 2,483 square feet and in price from the low $200Âs to the mid $300Âs.
During the two-day celebration the Plymouth Historical Society also will be showcasing limited edition shadowboxes, containing a piece of wood with embedded BBs from the air rifle factory, a photo of the Daisy factory, and an identifying brass plate.
"Come and learn about the wonderful history of the Daisy Air Rifle Company which started as a windmill company, switched to manufacturing air rifles, and ended up making Davey Crockett toy guns for Walt Disney," says Beth Stewart, director of the Plymouth Historical Society.
"This grand opening celebration will be the last opportunity for pre-construction pricing at Daisy Square," says Colella. "We invite everyone to come in and select the home thatÂs perfect for them in this one-of-a-kind community."
