Want to live downtown? How about in an apartment with a view?
The new owners of McKay Tower are dipping a toe into the downtown housing market by remodeling unsold top-story condominium units into luxury apartments.
“The research we have done has shown a demand for apartments,” said Chaundra Derks, director of operations for Steadfast Properties LLC, which bought McKay Tower last summer from internet entrepreneur Mark Roller.
“We also think the location is amazing and the views are great.”
Currently, the company is only remodeling the 15th floor into apartments amid an ongoing renovation project for the building that includes a new event space on the second floor, lobby improvements to upper floors and a new elevator system.
