The Brompton Condo Gets Bricked!


At first glance, the brickwork kind of reminds me of Camden Yards, but that is not a negative connotation. It does exude an old world, classic opulence, and need I remind you that this structure replaced a hodgepodge of low end store selling cell phones and jeans? So far, so good.
The building is growing nicely as well; around 16 or 17 stories, and should be topped off before the first freeze.

  1. So the brickwork is cosmetic? I guess the old days of actual bricklayers building these buildings is long gone.

  2. Brompton's architect, Robert AM Stern does nice "sophisticated" work. The end-product should look like "it's always been there".
