Benchmark Real Estate to Open New East End Office

Grand opening on Friday will also feature Solaris, a new condo development project on the Eastern Promenade.

Portland, ME - Today, Benchmark Real Estate announced the grand opening date for its new office in Portland's East End. Located at 104 Washington Avenue, the company is planning a weekend-long kick-off party beginning on Friday, December 20 from 4 to 7 p.m. An additional showing will be offered on Saturday, December 21 and Sunday, December 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The grand opening will feature the work of renowned local artist Annie Darling, tasty treats and beverages from local businesses, and a charity component; Benchmark will accept donations for The Root Cellar, a Munjoy Hill nonprofit.

Similar to Benchmark's existing locations in Portland and Yarmouth, the new office will be located in a community center - an area that is walkable, accessible, visible and at the heart of a neighborhood. Benchmark has a knack for being in the right place at the right time and "Inner Wash Ave," as it's called, is clearly one of Portland's trendiest locations. With its award-winning restaurants, distilleries, breweries, shops, galleries and boutiques, Inner Wash Ave is an area that attracts locals and visitors. This strategic location furthers Benchmark's commitment to community - from being truly local real estate experts to supporting fellow local businesses and nonprofits.

Coinciding with the office opening, the public can also tour the showroom for Solaris, which will bring "Eco-Lux" living to the Eastern Promenade. Located at 130 Morning Street, this nine-unit condo development is cutting edge in every way. It will promote sustainable and healthful living in Portland, featuring a roof-top solar farm, electric vehicle charging stations, super-efficient triple-pane windows, expansive sun-filled decks, organic garden plots, and a host of low-carbon and healthy living environment features. At the same time, the condos will include the high-end fit and finish that we all want and expect, from chef-inspired kitchens to spa-worthy baths.

"We are excited to announce the opening of another Benchmark office in Portland," said Benchmark owner Tom Landry. "This strategic location will ensure our team can carry on the tradition of being one with the community. At the same time, we couldn't be more excited to unveil Solaris. These homes promise to be some of the greenest, most energy efficient and healthiest to live in anywhere."
