Are Lofts Becoming 'Uncool'?
"Several months ago I found myself in Frederick, Colorado, one of those featureless expanses of dust that fills with tract houses simply because --traffic permitting -- it's a 30-minute drive to Denver. There I came face to face with the demise of the loft as a meaningful cultural icon... Drawn there by an ad I saw in a glossy real estate advertising magazine called Homes and Land of Boulder County. The developer, Cornerstone Homes, had several pages promoting Ironworks Lofts, a community of 'stand-alone' loft homes, single-family subdivision houses tricked out in industrial brick and steel with names like the Firehouse and the Cannery."
