Tucson's Urban Renewal - Converted Convent

This is an extraordinary example of imaginative real estate. The Immaculate Heart of Mary Convent and its adjacent school have been converted to residential lofts. This effort saved a circa 1886 building from destruction and provided airy urban living in the heart of downtown Tucson. This photo was taken from a friend's loft that is located in the adjacent "Dorm" building.
