This facade has a brutalist feel to it but new school with the exposed stilts at the bottom, the concrete looking boxes around the windows, and the large blank mech screen, I like it.



Windows



Stilts



Huge mech screen


Not saying it IS a brutalist building, I just see some influences imo.

Are they really going to put that billboard back up right next to the building? How incredibly tacky!

lmao @ all those people walking along Albany or frontage road or whatever that thing calls itself
I was laughing to, but then checked street view. It's not as much of a no-mans-land as I thought.

Maybe a different clientele than suited businessmen though...

The crowds from the view looking east are hilarious though.

no idea how ND doesn't get cleaned out with a co-living deal post COVID, but then again, it doesn't matter Alperin already made his money on this one through 2 recaps...

I'm sure it will be popular with recent graduates, who lived and will continue to live in dorms.

It's remarkable how small and crappy the first building with the whole foods looks in comparison to these others.

Agreed. Seems like a missed opportunity. Decent street-level experience though.

I also hate the huge parking lot in front of the grocery store. Couldn't they have put that underground and added some more housing?
