New house in Fairview neighborhood, Anchorage.
New house in Fairview neighborhood, Anchorage.

Spotted this today under construction on Ingra Street, a busy arterial leading downtown.  Good example of smart infill redevelopment.  Relatively narrow house, captures daylight nicely, leaves a useable yard left over on the south side of a 50 x 140 ft lot, the long dimension of the lot on the east-west axis.  All the more remarkable is it is being built by Spinnell Homes, a builder not typically known for context sensitive designs.
