Additionally, Crandall says plans are in theworks to landscape the grounds and construct both a new pool and aretail component to help attract residents.

Concurrently, the property will be converted to its SiegelSuites brand of "flexible-stay" properties, which the companydescribes as larger-than-average residential accommodations withoutthe commitment of a long-term lease agreement.
