The tenants of Sunset Towers were hand-picked. 

The first unusual thing about the Sunset Towers tenants is that the person who delivers the advertisement, Barney Northrup, is sixty-two years old.  He is riding around town hand-delivering letters.  The description of Sunset Towers makes it perfect for the people who get the letters.  For example, there is space for a dentist, a coffee shop, and a restaurant.  Also unusual is the fact that everyone who gets a letter makes an appointment to see the place.
