Renaissance BayA huge condo project along Keystone Avenue at 78th Street is coming out of the ground fast, and the developers now are offering tours to potential buyers. The $150-million Renaissance Bay project calls for 305 condos ranging in price from $350,000 to $800,000. The developer, Sun Shiel Properties LLC, tore down the old Landings apartment complex early in 2007 and began building the replacement in July, before the housing market turned ugly. About 20 of the units have been reserved and the first of them will close in August, said Karen Tolley, the developer’s vp of sales. Tours of the three building that are up are available from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. What do you think?
