    Love the floors and the paint colors. I don’t know why they included the “police just finished searching” kitchen pictures, but it seems like a decent size for a small unit. I presume the rooftop deck is shared, but I’d say good deal in this market.

      I had the same initial thought re the open kitchen doors, but I think the intent was to show the internal organization features (e.g., lazy-Susan, the cutlery drawer).

  • Anon. No. 5

    Is it permissible to have a fireplace with zero clearance to a wall?

    • Rich

      Really poor placement and it’s probably always been there. Ugly splashes and counters (the look is too busy overall and instantly dated), but well organized space.

  • womp

    i say good deal. the low monthly fee is especially appealing.

    • womp

      also impressed with understanding that it’s a small space and the attempt to provide organization and multifunctional areas

  • DC_Chica

    I went to the open house for the unit above this one (#201) and the layout worked surprisingly well given the square footage and the awkwardly shaped kitchen.

    IDGI: Vessel sink alert!
    I am still in disbelief at the popularity of super-busy backsplashes. And in this case, the granite (?) countertops also have a sort of pattern, so the combined effect is even busier.

    I used to live on this street and loved it so much. We moved out to Manor Park to get a semi-detached house with a yard, but if I were dogless/childless and looking for a walkable place to own, this would rank high. The tile backsplashes in the kitchen & bathroom are my only concerns – so busy, so ugly – but those can be fixed without much trouble.

    more like “exudes generic chic”

    Are Cable Railings up to code on a roof deck? I thought those needed to be solid. If code-worthy, maybe I’ll consider changing mine from ugly solid wall.
    Looks great. What is the pigeon hole in the wall for?
