Now that 30 W Erie is nearly finished, what’s Yo’all’s take on the execution of Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture‘s design? Last time we put it to a vote, some said the building was a beautiful addition to the block. Others said they preferred the Amoco station that used to occupy the site. I wouldn’t go that far, but I’m wondering what happened to the tall windows just below the roofline, which in the rendering provide a pleasing balance to the glass on the ground-floor retail level. I also miss the semi-circular windows in the mansard roof. And it looks like the western-facing section of the roof is missing a dormer. Too bad – the detailing around the cap was the best part of the rendering, for my money.
Prices at 30 W Erie range from $1.15 to $1.6 million. The building has two units per floor, with a total of 20 units. A sales center and model are located on the fourth floor.
