  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Details not but rendering depress my eyes that it’s deposable on the structure in detailed. (Hello YIMBY)

  2. Very nuce project!

  3. Errata corrige: NICE!

  4. A typically bland, interchangeable, forgettable developer bldg that could be built anywhere, but instead a developer only sees maximum square footage and not that his characterless box is an intrusion upon a wonderfully preserved, ornate row of Victorian mansions. Of course Yimbys will argue he can do it, it’s his property, but the question is why do it? Why intrude upon a block where residents obviously have taken great pride in preserving these gems for decades? Why exploit this block and leave this neighborhood architecturally poorer? Find a run-down eyesore, of which there are many, one in need of being re-developed and build your new box where it will actually improve the street and the neighborhood. The sad fact is this developer doesn’t care what he leaves behind in this neighborhood? He doesn’t live there.
