Tony Frantz, photographer/videographer extraordinaire and all around cool guy, took some awesome pictures at the Anthony Wayne Building. The building is to be completely renovated and the owners are adding 40 condos, 14 of which are sold already:
John Nichols, a principal with AWB Holdings, said his company has already sold 14 of the expected 40 condominiums to be constructed. This included the four units on the top floor, three units on the sixth floor and all the western units on floors 9 through 14.
Nichols said he expected to need to build model units and complete the installation of the large windows – work that has just begun on the top floor – before garnering so much interest.
“We’ve been overwhelmed and pleasantly surprised with the response,” he said.
The 100,000-square-foot building – constructed in 1961 – was originally home to Anthony Wayne Bank and most recently housed Chase Bank. For the past several years, it has been about 90 percent vacant. The project will build condominiums on floors 6 through 15 with retail space on the first floor. Floors 2 through 5 will remain a parking garage.
They’re out of my price range, and I’m pretty sure, at this stage, that I don’t want to own a property. Still, after seeing Tony’s photos, it makes you pause and reconsider, for a moment at least…
