Two very different concepts are illustrated for the northeast corner of N.Highland Ave and Wessyngton Road.  The plot of land now holds what looks like a chopped up house with a vintage apartment building in the back, but given the value of Morningside real estate it’s only a matter of time before they’re replaced by ±$1M homes.  In one corner, we’ve got the super contemporary, sustainability-focused firm Concourse E, which has done some really cool infill in Reynoldstown.  In the opposite corner is Jones Pierce Architects, whose residential portfolio tends to be more contextual.  Which option is “right?”  Who knows?  It’s like a billboard for postmodernism.

I ended my scooter joy ride by meandering through Morningside.  Just before the sun went down I shot this contemporary on Windemere Drive - totally Dwell.  Until next time!
