I think its going to be architectural gmish no matter what. Perhaps not the most beautiful of buildings but as former tenant I can tell you the apartments while not luxury by any means used to be clean, well laid out and got quite a bit of light and balconies were actually usuable compared to the small tiny balconies I see alot of the new condos have. I just can't believe we sacrificed green space to put up this monstosity. The green space even if was reserved for the apartment dwellers did add to the block and I enjoyed walking past it even when I know longer lived there.These 1960/70 apartment buildings are hard to love, presenting bland brick faces and recessed pit-like balconies. I like this opening up with windows, although lets hope they work on the other side eventually...or it will be an architectural gmish.
