Wednesday afternoon, I received a phone call in regard to my article in the latest Undercurrents magazine, on Downtown apartments. Jude Gray from the property that I had difficulty contacting, The Lofts at Main & Temple, was on the other end of the line. “I read your article . . .” she began. And then she agreed to give me a tour of the Lofts. I was pleasantly surprised and stopped downtown on Wednesday morning.
The lofts are still under minor construction, being painted as I entered the lobby. Gray stated that they were at about 80% capacity. Rents range from about a grand a month for a studio to three to four for a two bedroom loft on the eighth floor, according to Rent.com. Parking is available for tenants, which is a departure from other higher end apartments in the area, but using the Taking Care (exercise) Center is extra.
My tour went well, after a brief brownout in the elevator. I always find slight moment of horror amusing on any tour. Lofts are only available on the top floor and the complex uses much less marble and granite than others in the area. The apartments I looked at were quite spacious.
