Single Family Mansion
An interesting pastime of mine is walking past the various real estate signs in my neighborhood watching them "one up" each other. Here is something even I saw that struck my eye for a condominium development - a single family "mansion".
Here is an example of a single family mansion (that is part of a condo development) in River North. You can see a building that looks like a two flat on top of the parking lot in this building, about 10 stories or so off the ground.
That would be ODD to live there. You would go into a condominium entrance, get on an elevator, get off, and go into your "house"? Who are your neighbors? It just seems like a really strange idea. Why wouldn't you just buy a mansion "on the ground?"
