Maclaren Tower – bye bye red brick

The two photos above are of the senior’s residence on Maclaren street. The photos were taken from the small part of the apartment lot that opens onto Somerset, beside Hartman’s grocery store.

New balcony railings were installed earlier. Now framing is being attached to the red brick tower to put a new skin on the building (and hopefully upgrade the insulation at the same time). Soon, the only brick visible will be on the inset balconies, and the traditional red brick residential look will become some sort of panel exterior.

This makes an interesting project for sidewalk superintendents.
