It definitely is. I had a beer with an old Portuguese ghost last year.
A good friend of mine lives in a house a few doors down from the church conversion. He told me that the area residents really hated this development at first but that after they voiced their concerns, the developer listened and changed to something that was acceptable to everyone. It's nice to hear that a balance was struck (at least in his mind)
Walking through this neighbourhood and saw that they are blanketing the entire area with those sandwich boards announcing that the sales center is opening soon. This is literally the only modern condo development in the entire neighbourhood, which is largely houses and those three 60's rental buildings, and which has three church lofts in the immediate area. It will be interesting to see the kind of response it gets.
