My Old Apartment is a Condo and Doesn’t Look Like a Dump

Deneen and I, (and later, The Other Mike and I when Ben moved to Tucson) used to live in an apartment at 3150 Excelsior Blvd in unit #204. While the location was great – walking distance to Whole Foods, two blocks from Lake Calhoun – it wasn’t the finest property in the Calhoun / Isles Neighborhood.

A couple years ago, it was converted to condos. Apparently, someone bought our converted unit and is now selling it on Craigslist.

It showed up in my Minneapolis condos RSS feed on Google Reader. For anyone who remembers that place, check out this photo of the kitchen:

That’s one heck of a big change from the stinky cupboards caused by water dripping through the ceiling.

New appliances.

Hardwood floors rather than an old stained carpet.

The rooftop deck with rod iron tables sounds a bit different than the wobbly picnic table and sun-dyed lawn chairs of 2001.

  1. Hey, your old couch!

    Just kidding of course, there is zero resemblance in how this place sounds now to back in 2000 when you were there, eh?

    They must have sunk a few buckolas into the place and I suppose that is where the $270000 bargain price comes from. Yikes, I still have sticker shock seeing how the housing market is now compared to when I bailed out that year. Interesting catch, thanks for the trip down memory lane.
