Many of the people who have already rented apartments in the massive Pinnacle North project on Lakeshore Drive had not seen them.
In fact, some signed the dotted line when all they could see was an elevator shaft and blue sky, according to Kerry Johnson, leasing director for Pinnacle North.
But in the days prior to Saturday’s first move-in day, some of the city’s newest residents were able to see their new home, Johnson said. “They’re like, ’Wow! This is amazing,’” Johnson said. “If anything, they’ve been even happier than they anticipated. That’s been fun to bring people in.”
This weekend, the first residents of the long-awaited mixed-used project are moving in. Some of the businesses that also are part of the first phase of the project will be opening when the weather warms up for good.
