    Where will all the garbage cans go?

  2. How long ago was the matching walk-up demolished on this lot? Anyone know?

    • at least before 2008, as on Google Maps it was vacant then.

        The matching building (to its adjacent, surviving neighbors) that used to be there was torn down in the mid-90’s, I was at Pratt at that time but I can’t remember if it had burned down or of there was some other issue that precipitated its demolition. I recall thinking at that time that it would take decades (if ever) before that lot was ever built back, am glad to see it finally happening now!

  3. Out of place compare to the other buildings not even close . I live in the neighborhood and the affordable price is a joke just call it market rate. Gentrification will pay for it.

  4. This isn’t affordable housing but income based housing. It’s a joke . This is only affordable to upper middle income and upper class people not poor people who need the housing.
