  1. I love this building but it does look like to me they miscalculated the radii of those curved balcony cap pieces. The go from what looks like a larger overhang to barely anything on the curve. It’s noticeable and unlikely to be intentional – at least it’s hard to understand why anyone would do it like that.

    Hopefully whatever eventually replaces that one-story neighbor with the garage door is complimentary.

  2. Looks very 1960’s.

    I see the ghost of Art Moderne here, but the upper floors seem to overwhelm the ground floor. Something bolder could have been used there.

    Oh, I wanted to love this, but the second photo shows the upper balconies just overwhelm the design. Also, what’s with the balcony goofy panel seams?
    The main idea was solid, the execution was the failure.

    Brick expands and contracts. Without a joint, you can end up with stairstep cracks in the facade.
