Back in October, we told you about an ongoing rehab at 2154 Webster St., a former corner store and one of the uglier buildings in the neighborhood. At the time, the developer had done plenty of demo work, and was getting ready to add a third story onto the building.
This is what it looked like back then:
As you would imagine, plenty of progress has been made at this property in the intervening months. The aforementioned third story has been added, the facade has been redone, a rear deck has been constructed, and the home looks like it’s rapidly approaching completion. There’s just one problem…
It kind of looks like a refridgerator.
Bela Lugosi's Dead?
There's that rear deck
The thing that really jumps out at you is the lack of windows on the western side of the building. Could this be an intentional effort to conserve energy? Perhaps. But the lack of a first floor window on the northern side of the building makes us think that the window choices are less practical and more stylistic in nature. So… are these architects simply channeling a bauhaus aesthetic here? Or do they just have questionable taste?
We just don’t understand.
