Glass bathrooms: Seeing is believing

Talk about living an absolutely open life.Eight luxury units at the Third Avenue Lofts in downtown Scottsdale have see-through showers and bathrooms, separated from the main living area by a glass wall.

Kenneth Losch, principal of Avenue Communities, which developed the five-floor project, said he wanted to get people talking."Look at the washrooms in the lobby of the Opus Hotel in Vancouver, they're the talk of the town. The washrooms are separated for the men and women only by glass," said Losch, who also bought a unit with an exposed bathroom.

All of the lofts with see-through bathrooms have been sold, and only 16 of the 88 high-priced units (from $375,000 to $3.1 million) remain on the market at the property northeast of Indian School and Scottsdale roads. Buyer David Tan of Scottsdale said of the bathroom, "It's a conversation piece. It was something so unique I just had to buy it." However, he said he will be showering when his guests aren't around.
