When we last checked in on the five new construction homes plus two condo units plus parking at 211-221 Green St. back in November, the buildings were framed and sheathed. As we mentioned in an earlier post, these buildings are being developed by a subsidiary of Tower Investments, on land originally purchased from the (now renamed) Citizens Alliance for Better Neighborhoods.
In the past
We happened upon this development the other day, and the homes look like they’re nearly finished and ready to go on the market. While they are definitely an upgrade over some of Tower’s other residential projects, and certainly unlike any other homes we can think of in the area, we confess we’re a little concerned in the long term.
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.
