Marcus Christensen glanced at the furniture getting moved into the apartment next door.

The people he assumed were new neighbors had boring taste, he thought: Midcentury Modern furniture, a Marilyn Monroe poster. “It’s plastic, basic, and very modern-looking,” Christensen told Phoenix New Times.

Days after Christensen saw the movers, he received a notice of lease termination letter from his landlord. New Times spoke with three other tenants of Historic Westminster Apartments who got the same letter on August 13.

“At this time, we are announcing a new age for the Westminster Apartments,” the letter stated. “Ownership has elected to take the experience into a progressive new direction and turn the entire building into short term rentals.”
