    At first quick glance, I thought those stickers in the windows were portraits of Donald Trump in a suit with a thin black tie and a yellow head. Yes, I really did.

    I like the front, but I don’t love the color of those side/back wood panels. I prefer the wood panels on the Ditto development on third and NJ.

      Not sure which development you’re referring to, but I like these. Not a fan of the fishbowl, street-facing windows on small residential buildings, but that seems to be the design du jour.

      The front elevation is hideous – the big windows are fine, but that concrete-colored pillar seems completely out of place/proportion, as do its tiny, tiny windows.

    Normally I withhold judgment until a project is completed, but, ewww.

    My issue with the wood is that it needs annual maintenance. Otherwise it’s going to fade and not look that great very quickly (especially with direct southern & western sun exposure). That’s a big wall of wood.

      Yeah it’s called condo fees.

  • Here’s what the site looked like 2 yrs ago, when the house on it collapsed: https://flic.kr/s/aHsk1Vhwoq

    And every time I walk past that building I look at the front and can’t help but feel like they forgot a column of windows.

    The metallic window corner reminds me of my junior high (built in the 1960s, sans air conditioning) and now I can’t unsee it.

    Not bad over all, though.

    I love the wood paneling

    I wonder who owns it and did the development. I think there were two different owners of this parcel- the one standing building had parts of the inside that were historic, and the owners would keep on defaulting on their taxes and trying to develop it themselves until one of the owners died. The other empty parcel- I don’t know who owned that. And there is also development behind the buildings facing M St across the alley entrance next to these buildings- what’s up with that?
