  1. Faced with an abundance of vacant lots in the neighborhood, a developer buys the center building in a series of rare late 19th century two story rowhouses so he can demolish said structure and build a new three story apartment buidling. Plus, I’ll bet $20 that white siding was covering up a masonary structure that looked like the neighbors to the right.

    • I don’t know how many vacant lots there are in the area, but the ones that do exist are likely paying little in property taxes. The owners are probably holding them to eek out more profits and to delay capital gains tax payments. There could maybe be policies enacted to force turnover of vacant lots, but that would require vision, ambition, and effort on the part of city and county officials.

    • You’re probably right. This Charles Shwartz architect behind the design exclusively designs cinder-block buildings. Expect a major downgrade, despite the height bump

  2. Article Header reads 4341 S Evans Ave. Text reads 4314 S Evans, which is a vacant lot, and the actual site for this project.

  3. I think there may have been a mix-up here. The headline and photo caption say 4341 S. Evans, but the first paragraph says 4314. Which address is correct?

  4. This architect’s name keeps coming up on lots of random small stuff. I can’t find any images of completed things of theirs. Does anyone have a profile/portfolio?
