    Default Anyone Living in Willy's Overland Lofts?

    I have passed by this development on several occasions, especially at night and have only seen a few lights on the upper floors. I see that many of the balconies still have not been put into place either. What gives?

    Definitely people living here. I believe the development is 30-40% full sold. Several more units are under contract, but the problem right now is that the building won't qualify for FHA financing (only 3% down payment) until 3 other units are sold. Until then, people need 20% down payment, which is a taller order.

    But yes....people living here, and I think they just closed the penthouse unit.

    According to Model D Willys Overland has some gay and lesbian residents. And perhaps a dress code?

    I have to agree. I don't know if they are selling at their asking prices, but the asking prices seem rather high.

    Checking in with the khakis, white shirt and shaved head. No idea it was a gay-iform.

    I was there sometime last summer or fall for an event. The place is really nice but i believe at the time many of the units were still unsold (they had an office showing many of the options; you can pretty much spec out your unit anyway you want)

    I was out on the balcony and the location and view is amazing. If you can afford it, it would be tough to find a much nicer place. (I have a picture but having trouble uploading it)
