What’s New In Provincetown?

What’s New?

The West Vine – Bradford Four Corners neighborhood continues to grow.  Three new townhouses at 51 West Vine are being built next to the existing 55 West Vine and 57 West Vine condos. The foundation has been poured for two large condos at 162 Bradford Street Extension. Both three bedroom units are already under agreement pre construction with asking prices of $1.095M and $1.175M. Victors Restaurant and Gale Force Bikes are the commercial centers for the neighborhood.

Sections of Commercial Street in the East End and Bradford Street downtown are being repaved over the next few weeks. Beware of parking issues. Picture is of Commercial Street looking east from around number 596 Commercial Street.














The former WA store at 220 Commercial Street has been renovated into two gorgeous new retail spaces. Both have been leased to successful retail operations. Watch for opening announcements in the next few weeks.














The Herring Cove Beach parking lot has been a staging area for the reconstruction work on Province Lands Roads, the road from Herring Cove Beach to Race Point Beach. It should be completed by Memorial Day. The beach erosion at Herring Cove is extensive and the lower part of the parking lot toward Hatches Harbor has lots of damage.  It should also be repaired by Memorial Day. See Cape Cod National Seashore website.

We are anxiously awaiting the reopening of the wildly successful Farlands Reataurant On The Beach at the  new bath house at Herring Cove pictured below.  It has become a local “must do” especially on music and bonfire nights.















…and the horses are resting up for the season at the horse barn on West Vine and Blueberry.














Hope to see you soon.

Thanksgiving In Provincetown. (BTW…The Pilgrims Landed Here First!)

Well it’s fall in Provincetown. Sandy has come and gone as so has the election. The trees have dropped most of their leaves providing water views where there were none. And although the town is considerably quieter than during the summer buzz, it’s a wonderful time to relax and enjoy some of the other beautiful scenes here on the Outer Cape.

Weekends in November and December offer fun events for family and friends to gather and share each other’s company – like the traditional Lighting of the Pilgrim Monument on November 21 from 5-7PM that opens the busy Thanksgiving Weekend. There’s also a benefit for the Provincetown Business Guild with their Casino Night at The Crown & Anchor on Friday the 23 at 8PM. And for shoppers, there’s the festive Holly Folly weekend, Nov. 30 to Dec. 2, with many stores open and offering deep discounts. Look for regular community updates here on the blog.

We all love this town for what it offers us in season. But, Provincetown also has a very engaged and caring year-round community with many opportunities to get involved. Please think about continuing your love and support for our community over the upcoming holiday season by helping some of our nonprofit organizations. Volunteer, send in a donation, participate in fundraising events. To help get you started, we’ve included a great “clickable” list of nonprofit organizations and ways to get involved. (see below)

So, come to town for a weekend or two and enjoy the “other season” that Provincetown offers and do a little good along the way.

And, be sure to stop in and say hi when you’re here. We’ll have the fireplace going and the coffee brewing.

Wherever Thanksgiving and the holidays finds you this year, we are thankful for your friendship, your continued trust in us for your real estate needs and the referrals you send our way. We look forward to seeing you in the New Year and share our hope with all of you for prosperity, good health and renewed friendships.

Your friends at  Beachfront Realty.
