Such hotel-style amenities were a big draw for Erik Pfeifer, a 30-year-old accounting manager who had been living and working in Worthington, Minn. He signed up for a one-bedroom apartment several months ago when he took a job with a company in the nearby North Loop neighborhood, and his corner apartment on the 16th floor has several windows with dazzling skyline views.
“I wanted to be where the action is,” said Pfeifer. “I was five years in southwest Minnesota, where not much happens, and I wanted to be where everything is happening in a historic building right in the heart of downtown.”
Pfeifer represents exactly the demographic Village Green and other developers are hoping to attract. He walks to work, and is excited to meet other urban dwellers in his new vertical neighborhood. The building’s unique character was a big draw, as well.
“What I found appealing is that it’s a historic building,” he said. “But it’s been completely redone and you have modern finishes.”
