When I saw a construction fence around this beat-up building at 60th Place and Metropolitan Avenue earlier this year, I figured it was going to be demolished. With R6B zoning and a C2-4 overlay, there's a lot more height that could be added.
But lo and behold, that's not what the owner had in mind. He did a total renovation and the place now looks a lot better than it did before.
It could even pass for a new building. Let's hope something useful moves in!
