I like it, it fits the warehouse industrial architecture. I just wish the site plan was more accurate.

The design for 2400 E. Franklin couldn’t be more out of place.

The proposed “design” in Sugar Bottom (3005-3007 E. Franklin) looks like a morgue or crematorium.

I actually think the Franklin Street building (3005-3007) would be a vast improvement over what used to be there/is there now. I think a building like that is much better tucked into a wooded landscape on the edge of a cluster of historic buildings – less of an extreme juxtaposition.

Out of curiosity, why does the façade rendering have all those white lines? Are they meant to be elevation lines? Perspective Guidelines? What exactly is going on there?

That residence looks as out of place and ridiculous as the one on Leigh.

Why exactly is there a CAR in existence? If it is to make sure ugly, inppropriate buildings get built in a Historic District, they are doing a great job! There are mirror houses across the street from me, (three attached matching) and they couldn’t be more disjointed and unattractive. One has blue trim and gray porch color, one has white trim and white porch with a LIME GREEN door, and one has red trim with a blue door that dose’t come close to matching the blue on the other house. Someone drove me to the end of Marchall St. to… Read more »
