That’d be a nice view… IF I COULD SEE OUT OF IT!
If you rent an apartment, you might know that some units cost more than others. The floor in which your apartment unit is on can determine your monthly rent. Typically, the higher up you are, the more it costs. Well, this apartment owner felt like less-paying tenants didn’t deserve as many amenities as their higher-paying counterparts.
So, to compensate, they continued building a balcony but did not provide access to it. This might actually be good planning since children tend to get into all sorts of trouble on balconies. If this was the case, we commend you, apartment owner, for prioritizing safety over everything else.
