Chances to Check Out Downtown Housing

Yesterday I got up early and went on DCBID's Saturday Housing Bus Tour. Hal and company lead these tours twice a month, taking visitors to visit five or six Downtown properties (or sales centers, depending on the situation.

This particular tour took fifty potential Downtown residents (and some who already live here) to visit Packard Lofts, Library Court, Market Lofts (sales center), Pan American Lofts, Biscuit Company Lofts (sales center) and Sky Lofts. I took some photos and have put a set together showing the places we visited.

I enjoy these tours for a pair of reasons: it's a chance to get into properties I'm curious about and it's a chance to reconnect with what people are saying as they look at Downtown properties. Several tour-goers were already blogdowntown readers, which was cool.

Coming up soon is an even better chance to see what's on the market Downtown, as the yearly Downtown Living Weekend rolls around March 10th and 11th. Sixteen properties will be participating. Sign up on the DCBID site. Walking around is free, but for $15 you can get access to shuttles running a loop between the properties.
