PITTSTON — City officials, Century 21 representatives and residents of the Water’s Edge condominiums on Kennedy Boulevard gathered Friday, April 8 for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

In 2013, city officials broke ground on the $9 million condo project. Grimm Construction in Waymart was the developer. The project was build with a public-private partnership. The city and Redevelopment Authority received grants totaling $4 million for the project.

The original plan for the building was much larger — around six stories with 40 condos. Instead, the four-story building now features 30 condos. According to real estate officials, consturction won’t be completed until all units are sold, since new buyers get to customize their living spaces, such as choosing flooring and counter tops.
