During the condo conversion craze of the late 2000’s, a popular technique for developers was to purchase many of the 6/12/24 unit apartment buildings and convert them to condos. The typical model was to purchase a largely un-renovated apartment building, gut the property and renovate with new kitchens and baths. Generally, the developer would combine a room with the new kitchen to create a ‘great room’ concept to modernize the floor plan.
These conversions created affordable ownership opportunities in what was a generally expensive area of town and it appealed to first time buyers that wanted to create roots in the Fan and Museum Districts.
