I came here to check the building after sitting in the park and thinking about how amazing the units facing west over the park would be.. wow that’s a design. I don’t think I can imagine living in that. why does it look like that. I love modern architecture but this is a very strange design choice.

Yup, it’s an odd duck, that’s for sure. It’s like a 21st century version of the oddity home to Castle just down the road. Different of course, but just odd.

Honestly the one above Castle is kind of cute

It looks like remediation of the old/existing building is well underway now...

Is more than the facade being retained from the original building?

Yes, some work is happening in the back section of the lot as well. Should we call this u/c now?
