Have an extra $80K lying around? Consider buying a skyway
Are you in the market for an elongated, concrete-and-glass box? Do you have $80,000 cash on hand? If so, someone has a suspended pedestrian bridge on the U of M campus they'd like to sell you.
A Minneapolis-based architecture firm has posted a listing on Craigslist (where else?) seeking to sell a 1,380-square foot skyway. Two conditions: 1) Cash only, and 2) You gotta pay the moving costs.
What to do with a severed skyway, you ask? The listing offers some suggestions, some appropriately vague, others curiously specific: Wine bar. Restaurant. Skating warming house. Yoga studio. Inhabitable billboard.
Our personal favorite is the ninth-listed suggestion: "Skyway."
