      My great uncle bought the set new in '57, it's immaculate and we have all the protective covers. More pics below

      that is the coolest place I have seen in a long time.

      A friend of mine was renting an apartment in Indianapolis in an old department store. The lobby of the building was like 8 stories tall and had an escalator (not running) that went up to the sixth floor. It was like an Embassey Suites hotel. Bada$$ place to live

      It's really amazing space but I'm trying to imagine heating and cooling it.

      The entire building is Granite. Keeps cool in the summer and insulates the heat that rises in the winter. Thick well insulated roof keeps the heat in. The small windows keep it cool.

      yeahhhh, keep telling yourself that...

      but in all honesty be prepared for monster bills. All old buildings are leaky to a point, and while stone does retain heat, and insulates somewhat, when it heats up it stays warm, and when it gets cold, its stays cold.

      but yeah congrats, and its a very cool place. Im just trying to imagine, how, I would paint/decorate it, and I cant come up with anything lol. Its such a unique space.

      Previous owners bills weren't outrageous. The building was converted with the fact that it's an old building in mind, they sealed it up pretty tight. And yeah I'm still stumped as to how to go about decorating/painting. I'll keep the minimalist look for a while. All the walls are angled so it's tough to hang things.

      A year from now, we'll be reading about the 4" rigid foam insulation project.

      Using zillow I looked at the pictures of the other units for sale in the building and I think you got the best unit there. It looks to me like the developer didn't do a very good job turning the large courtrooms into real living space. The only other space that looked Ok was the basement unit but it hardly had any windows.
