trouble out my window

the higgins building, which you can see in the bottom of my earlier city hall photos, is converting to condos and some of the residents are not happy. it sounds like the developer is either screwing with the tenants, or only marginally competent.

i looked at the higgins building, but it was more expensive than where i ended up for lofts i wasn’t as attracted to. the deal for the condo conversion (half of the rent being put towards 5% of the purchase price) was intriguing, but it was pretty clear to me that the higgins spaces were not something i’d be happy owning.

another bit from downtown news: the old bank district artwalk is next weekend. read the article. (and the claim is that warung cafe will open soon. i’ll believe it when i see it, it has been “coming soon” since i moved here almost a year ago.)
