Limited Inventory Remaining at Chic, Loft-Style Condominium
The fact that CANCOlofts is an industrial-to-residential conversion of the former American Can Co. factory is a big draw for buyers, who are captivated by the authentic loft feel of the condominiums with their soaring ceilings, dramatic windows and mushroom-capped concrete columns. But for Tami Wisniewski, 35, who purchased a one-bedroom condo last November, the building's industrial past hold a special personal significance: her grandmother, Agnes Hudak, and her grandfather, Donald Diego, met while they were both working at the American Can Co. factory during World War II. "If it weren't for American Can, my grandparents would never have met, my mother would never have been born and I wouldn't be here today," she says.
