I sat in that same booth in that same diner recently. I can only wonder what the future plans to develop the site that quaint little diner sits on now: it think it is a railroad car. I took some photo of that building across the street with the bulbous windows: they look great, and have plenty of nice tradition brickwork all around the bay window and on the entire facade above. Will post as soon as I get back to my office later today; I promise…

Yes, looking good. Simply stated, the building is attractive, artful, and interesting: that will get my ‘good design’ seal of approval every time. I take a laymen’s approach to evaluating the architectural design; I am not too critical, or sophisticated in my opinions - but do appreciate good design.

‘A’ for artistry. Any building that rises above the generic, value engineered, expediently constructed box gets a well deserved capital ‘A’ every time.

Something very unique. Has character, and nothing like it in the city.

Agreed. Those replies made me laugh.

It’s a great riff on the downtown industrial aesthetic mastered by Adjmi and Tamarkin.
