Status Update: The Park Monroe

You can call it the Park Monroe all you want, but to us it’s still Mid-Continental Plaza .  The conversion of the upper stories of this office building into swanky double-height condominiums actually appears to have done the building some good.

It’s no longer a boing box of grey pinstripes.  The change in form at the residential level gives it an interesting visual cap and helps it stand out more than it did before.
