Wonderful! I love indie book & music shops!I'm going to have to look up the address to see where on Kenilworth this is...There are still a few high profile vacant retail spaces (and lots) on Professor. Any takers?
Fruit Avenue Townhomes: 4-5 townhomes with a modern "industrial" flare, tucked into the corner of Fruit, Brayton & W. 9th. These must be close to completion now.
Thanks. This bookstore will help the neighborhood. Maybe it's just me, but I think something is lacking in Tremont to make it a functional neighborhood, as opposed to, say, Ohio City.Anyone else think that? If so, what is missing?
Fruit Avenue... weird looking homes. Why the "neo-industrial" look? Do people actually like that? I suppose some do, as Lake Point (Fr. Caruso & W. 65th) sold well, but what about some nice ones that don't try so hard to look modern and have a little brick or nice finished woodwork? I know, it's a matter of taste...
You've got John, Whitman, Woodbine, all the courts and numbered streets like W. 38th & W. 32nd that almost intersect. It's like the friggin West Village over here sometimes!
Some recent shots during a drive-by :
For much of the next half-century, it was a flophouse for artists and vagabonds.
Having been inside this building, talked to the developer, and seen what it's made of, I think this project will succeed. I absolutely loved the unique spaces inside, highlights of which are an interior courtyard and two story laundry room, whose flip-down ironing boards are still intact behind wooden doors. The place is amazing and is in a fantastic location, to boot. Go Robertses!
