Charlotte, NC (CNN) It’s hard to miss the two-story apartment complex in northgate.
It’s a quiet neighborhood, home to some of the city’s best restaurants and bars.
But it’s also a destination for many, as this week’s search for a new apartment.
A lot of the apartments were vacant or boarded up for some time.
The owner, a former nurse, told CNN affiliate WLOS that she was searching for a place to move out.
It was a big change for her, but she’s now looking for something different.
“I just think it’s going to be the right thing to do for the neighborhood and the people in the neighborhood,” said the owner, who asked not to be identified.
She said she found out about the search when she was walking to work.
“And I’m like, oh my God, this is not good,” she said.
“It’s like, this person is going to do a lot of good.”
A search party went to the complex Wednesday morning and took a closer look at apartments.
They didn’t find much.
But then they found what they were looking for.
The owner said the search was a great chance to get out of her rental and put her life back together.
“We were very happy with the result,” she told CNN.
She was able to keep her apartment and moved out on Monday.
The complex owner said it’s not a bad place to live, though she said there was a lot to be desired.
“It was hard to find apartments in the complex because it was so empty,” she explained.
“So, we have a lot in common with other apartments.
But the apartment complex is a nice place, so we were happy to stay.”
She’s looking for a different type of space, but the owners are not letting go of their old apartments.
