I simply care about living in the heart of the city, but there is a constant vibe in the air that just makes it seem alive.
Even in the wee hours of the morning you can still hear voices & sometimes music in the air, i have a entirely cute flat on the east side of village & it is in an artsy city.
There are consistently many artisans, musicians, & street vendors around which makes for entirely wonderful wanders through the city, then unfortunately a development group has bought a few of the older buildings & they are in the process of either renovating them or replacing them. I am all for reusing or repurposing an old building into residential units but unfortunately the building next to ours could not be saved & it was torn down. They are now in the process of building a multi-purpose building which will have apartments on the top & retail space on the bottom & there is 1 major problem with that, the building will be taller than mine & I will no longer have our view outside the window. In fact, it is exactly 1 Storyteller & I will have a building to look at & the constant noise of the important HVAC units on top of it to listen to. They brought in a crane Last weekto bring the important units up to the roof & I cannot know how big they are. I can only imagine the noise that they will put off 24/7 & it will make living in our home almost unbearable. I will no longer be able to leave our windows open & listen to the sounds coming from the street below & that makes me sad, but when our lease is up I will absolutely be looking for a new venue to live because I don’t relish the thought of looking out at a brick wall & listening to the drone of the motors all the time.
