When I used to visit my Grandma in Hallendale, Florida there were condos like this all over the place. I think if I bought one of these near the 9:30 club I’d be pretty pissed there was no view of the intracoastal.

  • Aren’t these the condos that advertise themselves as “hip” “modern” and “cool” in that annoying font?

    Reminds me of what a friend of mine once said about countries whose official names include two or more of “people’s” “democratic” and/or “republic”: the more you feel you have to tout it, the less likely it is to be true.

    Totally overpowering those little rowhouses.

    Yeah I wrote about the horrible ad campaign back in October. You can read the post here.

    Definitely ties for worst ad campaign with the EYA “Hyattsville Arts District” just over the Maryland Border. The Arts District ad tagline is “Hip is Here”….you decide.

  • Shame; I always really dug the old blue rowhouse, walking by… Now I fear it’s doomed….

  • i almost support tearing down those rowhouses just to hide that 1960s Urban Renewal blank concrete wall on the Floridian. hideous.

  • *tearing down the rowhouses and building something big…

    Its a pretty bad looking building, but I think I would rather have this than the parking lot that was there before. This is also one of the cheapest priced new properties in the area, I remember when they started sales, there was a line down the block (granted it was during the boom in 2005).

    The “1960s Urban Renewal blank concrete wall” is there becuase the property may abut new development where the rowhouses now stand — people wouldn’t be happy to wake up one day with their windows looking at another wall 2 inches away.

    I drive by this awful mess every day on my way to work and it looks like an old dorm building on my college campus named “Shibles Hall” that was multi-colored 70’s ickiness. But maybe I’m being a bit harsh.
