Monument recently transformed the old Morris Plan Bank and office building into Class A luxury apartments with a rooftop swimming pool and terrace, an on-site fitness center, and dedicated parking. The property includes 195 loft apartments, with one-, two-, and four-bedroom units. Located at the southwest corner of E.
