that's actually not a bad plan for the space available. one thing that's nice about the design is lots of natural light with all the windows.

they should partner with Ikea to show how you can furnish the space


Yeah, I like the plan for the layout. Talk about a unique highly intimate product to offer, with windows all around.

Those plans look pretty great!

As far as the abundant (transparent) windows and urban setting "Jenkin's Exhibitionist Apartments, Showing Soon!!"

Is there anything stating what the rents might go for? I'd be very interested in a two bedroom.

More likely it was never truly being worked on. Copaken maintains a long tradition of coming up with projects and then not finishing them.

that sucks. I didn't read that Copaken was the company working on this. I wouldn't have gotten my hopes up.

I've not seen any activity there from across the street. Seemed like a odd project and likely difficult to make profitable.

The time to have done it was when they were constructing the attached office building and garage--if they had moved the garage 6-10 feet to the east fronting Grand, they could also have made the apartments a bit larger. I don't know what the exact setback from Grand is, but there is a fairly large one compared to other buildings.

I never understood the reason for that setback. If they had added street trees when they built the garage, I could see doing it to allow for more room for the tree canopy, some landscaping, and perhaps some tables if there are ever cafes in the Bonfils Building. But there isn't one tree on that stretch. There are on the Walnut side.

Copaken put up signs in the ground-floor windows saying that lofts are available, so...maybe this is a thing again?

Seems like it would be a strange place to live. Not much space to create a buffer from the parking garage - no sense of community at all. Not sure I see any redeeming factors other than the really convenient location.

It's a false reality, just like several other Copakan properties. They just sit on something and wait for someone to come along and over pay for it. Example, surface parking lot next to Sprint Center.
