The apartment building and local area has changed A LOT since 2002. In 2002, it was mostly a retirement community. There was extensive construction on the building and surrounding neighborhood between 2003-2004 (with associated noise, limited parking, and no use of the balcony). <br><br>Now: Neighborhood is… See More
