Looking for a unique small house? Well look no further. CITYDESKSTUDIO Inc. of Minneapolis, home to a unique system of glass “tunnels” located one story above ground, is selling a Minneapolis Skyway Designed by architect Ed Baker, the “father of the skyways,” and built in 1978, previously connected JC Penny’s to Powers department stores above 5th Street in downtown Minneapolis. An architectural icon of the Twin Cities, the skyway was a place of movement, a place of connection, and most importantly, a place of transition.
This Minneapolis Skyway can span 80 feet and is almost 20 feet wide. It could go over a road, a river, a creek, a ravine. It can be lifted off the ground and offer ample parking and storage beneath. As a small house it can have 2 bedrooms a reading room, full bath, kitchen, dining, and still leave space enough for a 40 foot living room.
You are not going to believe this: the asking price is only $49,500. The gents at CITYDESKSTUDIO Inc. must be crazy because if you wanted to build a new Skyway you’ll be looking at upwards of $1,000,000. The steel structure in this Skyway alone has been estimated at @ $250,000. Believe us, an opportunity like this will not pass your way again.
