I’ve been watching this place go up near my son’s building.  It was built really quickly, using modular units trucked to the site and stacked atop and beside each other. 

It’s not super deluxe, high end housing — and it sits right next to a busy arterial — but they made a lot of right moves here.  It is well sited, and each narrow two story unit has two ground floor doors, a second story and a rooftop deck.  Residents will enjoy great views from those decks, and the courtyard between the three buildings has southern exposure. 

It’s nice to see higher quality multifamily dwellings popping up on urban infill lots.  Perhaps it’s a silver lining to a slow economy — builders feeling like they have to try a little harder to attract tenants?
