I'd be hard pressed to want to rent one of these apt. The are totally devoid of any warmth or character>just cold, utilitarian and clinical like an empty office building. Even the old photos of what was housed in the building before renovation, seem out of place. A tent in the woods has more appeal.


Thank You for using all contractors from out of town. This really shows how much you do not care about La Crosse.


Blech! Cold and sterile with no charm whatsoever.
