New Place to Park
Come this November Public Square will have more people milling around town thanks to the Park Building. This historic nine-story landmark is currently being converted into luxury condos with great views of downtown. Refinished hardwood floors, granite kitchen countertops and dark oak molding and trim are standard with each unit. But if you’d like something specific, don’t be afraid to ask. One of the soon-to-be-new tenants purchased two condos and is combining them to include a library and walk-in closet. Also, a 10th floor is being added to allow for two-story penthouse suites that will have bedrooms overlooking the kitchen and living areas. Of course, you’re wondering how much a place like this will cost: One- and two-bedroom suites start at $100,000, while three-bedroom suites start at $300,000. With the rising cost of gas, its looks like a good deal, especially when you can go down the street to grab a bite at Lola or head out to West Sixth for a night out on the town — and of course, walk to work.
