Re: Zag Apartments (51st & Mayberry)

I don't understand these $1000 a month studios. Who is their target demographic? What I mean is, who has $1000 a month to throw away on a 676 sq ft studio apartment? Studio $1,020 1 Bedroom $1,120 – 1,270 2 Bedrooms $1,350 Source: http://www.apartmenthomeliving.com/apartment-finder/ZAG-Omaha-NE-681...
