Grunt green, pea green, etc.
It isn’t easy being green. Check out the paint job on the parking garage on the east side of Downer Avenue. You know the one we mean. The one that’s big ugly and THERE. The addition of green paint laid on in confusing configurations is a bit like putting lipstick on a pig. Further south on Farwell, in the block where dwelleth “Mr. Shoe,” two more buildings are undergoing paint mania. The orange-ish 50’s Atomic design on the building on the west side of the Farwell drag strip is actually fun, but the one across from it is not to be believed … big blocks of color that shout in order to define the property. Not a good idea, plus the developer ripped out the funky awning windows which at least added a former note of interest.
The Breakwater Condo on Prospect Avenue (the one overlooking modest Burns Park) is moving along, most recently with the addition of major balconies hanging from the units. Next year they’ll be filled with grills and furniture no one ever sits in.
