Condo Monster on Alabama Street
The longtime romantic restaurant Bistro Vino has been closed for a few weeks now, and we're getting word on what's going to replace it.
But just what type of ugly is up to you!!
The folks at real-estate blog Swamplot have got their hands on a promotional brochure from the person who will be developing the property once occupied by Bistro Vino and an apartment complex.
Color them unimpressed.
"InnerLoopCondos Wants To Know: Would You Prefer Ugly, Pretentious, or Simply Out of Place?" is the headline, over pictures of the half-dozen styles of condo tower being contemplated.
And it's difficult to disagree with their assessment, unless you'd like the tree-shrouded home that was Bistro Vino to be replaced by a garishly yellow, cupola-topped monstrosity or an ultra-modern steel-and-glass monstrosity.
Where's a real-estate bust when you need it?
