The Temple Building is an interesting building downtown in the Main and Clinton neighborhood. It is a 14-story skyscraper that, bizarrely, contains a 9,000 square-foot Gothic cathedral at its base. It was renovated into lofts and commercial space by Costanza Enterprises in the mid-2000s. Amenities include advanced security features, in-suite laundry, high-speed Internet, and a private, heated indoor garage.

2005-11-01 16:02:15   I'm that demographic- young, urban, and looking for a large and modern apartment. —AdamLynch

2005-11-02 10:23:22   Young, urban, and rich enough to spend $900 a month on a 1br apartment! I'm going to ask you to buy if you ever show up for one of our drink-and-edit sessions. —FarMcKon

2005-11-04 15:34:24   $900/mo? you can't be serious. —TobinFricke

2005-11-05 15:31:01   Is the 'cathedral' consecrated and/or functioning or open to the public ever? —JonRobins

2005-11-08 19:03:06   FarMcKon: Not a problem at all. :-) Got one coming up? —AdamLynch

2007-04-15 17:20:09   Looking at the photographs of the building, my impression is that the "temple" is at the top of the building, and not at the base. —DavidHowe
