Talk about uninspiring,looks like cardboard? 😝
Uninspiring maybe. It’s really not bad though. For affordable next to the elevated it’s perfectly fine. This section of Jerome was a auto shop sewer 10 years ago.
Yes yes i like. Thank you

Shame on all you
Shame on all you Uncaring Politicians, City Planners and

This looks perfectly fine in person. It’s affordable housing next to the elevated. would you rather have Badaly or Caliendo or some other ghastly hack firm “design” something like this. Count your blessings buddy.
Its not the prettiest but’s exactly what we need. High rise, dense and low rent housing close to transit. More of this please!
