CNN “It was like Christmas in the fall, and I was excited,” said Stephanie Glynn, a resident of a condo building near where her house stands.
“But it turned out it was a gift from the Lord.”
The building was built to house some 600 families in the Twin Cities suburb of South Minneapolis.
It has become an eyesore for residents who live there, including the people who work at a nearby grocery store.
The Twin Cities has some of the highest vacancy rates in the nation.
And as residents look for homes that offer some semblance of security, some are finding themselves unable to find homes for years.
A new condo in the US, the first of its kind, is the first example of a large, single-family house in the city that doesn’t include a garage, which makes it difficult for homeowners to rent out their spare rooms to tenants, Glynn said.
“It’s a perfect example of what we’re trying to accomplish,” she said.
“You can have people in a condo who don’t want to be in a rental unit and still have a condo, and there’s no other way to do it.
It’s the right way.”
In addition to the rental unit, the new condominium is being designed to be an ideal living space for people who need a place to call their own, according to a press release.
Located in the heart of a city known for its rich arts scene, the Twin Towers atrium is the largest office building in North America, with a capacity of more than 4 million square feet, according a release.
Its facade is made from concrete, and the building is surrounded by parking garages, according the release.
“It’s not a perfect solution for people living on the street,” said Michael Pecoraro, vice president for government relations for the Twin City Association of Realtors, which represents condo owners.
“The owners want it for themselves, but they don’t really want to live in it.”
The project is being overseen by the National Association of Home Builders.
The project has been funded through the city of South Minnesota’s Housing and Community Development Department, and is being funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the release said.
