700 A Condominium
700 A Condominium (formerly the Highland Court Apartments) is a 35-unit condominium building located at 700 34th Street South.
The complex, built as apartments in the 1950s, was sold to partners Michael Cooney, Brett Connor, Court Davis and Clint Choate in June 2006 for $1.5 million. They spent $5 million updating and renovating the building with a swimming pool courtyard, recreation room, dry sauna and a re-styled facade.
The project was designed by Erdreich Architecture and built by Professional Builders with financing from Red Mountain Bank. The project was completed in June 2008. The units ranged from $149,000 to $339,000 when first put on the market. The upper units have views of the city skyline.
In 2016 the property was sold to another local development group headed by David Oakley for $2.2 million. In addition to exterior and interior renovations, Oakley planned to lease individual units as apartments as they became available.
