City Walk is looking good!

There’s not a lot of inventory available over at City Walk, it’s a pretty hot building right now! I imagine the residents are getting antsy to get their outdoor pool filled so they can soak up some rays and start enjoying their 12th floor deck.

City Walk is one of only a few condos in downtown […]

New Water main for the Pointe & the Penfield

Residents of the Pointe this week found themselves soaked in history. With construction of the Penfield coming along nicely, it was time to hook them up to City of St Paul water supply.  When the city was looking at the connection, they decided it was time make some upgrades to the old water main.

Electric Car vs Condo Association

As the automotive world progresses and the electric car continues to improve (the Tesla Model S was named Motor Tend’s 2013 Car of the Year), and more electric cars being made available to the general public (Money.com said that Chevrolet Volt sales tripled in 2012), leads us to a dilemma.  Where does a condo owner charge […]

Emergency Planning: it's not just for Dec 21, 2012

Condo living – easy living at it’s finest.  Normally that’s a pretty true statement.  The Pointe of St Paul experienced a electrical interruption that should be a wake up call to all condo owners.  Do you have an Emergency Plan?  What would you do if your building lost power for an extended period of time? […]

Add Printers Row to the list of FHA Approved buildings!

Sure, the exterior just got a fresh coat of paint, but the improvements at Printers Row are more than skin deep.  Behind the scenes, the building sought and received FHA approval from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

What’s this mean to you?  As a buyer, you can now buy in this building using FHA […]

The Hot List is Back!

OK, there’s a smoking deal right now, but as required – I can’t openly tell you about this great value.

I’d put this unit more in the “great investment” category than to actually live in, but I’m not going to dissuade someone wanting to buy it as an owner-occupied home.

What makes this […]

Gallery Tower Condominium halfway through their elevator modernization project

Gallery Tower Condos is almost ready to flip the switch on their new elevator.  They’ll then take dthe remaining original elevator out of service, and before you can say “Taking the stairs is hard work”, the elevators will be fully modernized – hopefully not needing to be touched for another 30+ years.

I’m excited to see […]
