✎ The classic beige-brick condominium building, designed by William Sofield, was completed in 2013. The façade features hand-carved stone, custom-pigmented hand-laid brick, hand-cast ironwork, and oversized, fully customized window.

✍ It's quite rare to see this type of decorative element on a new building these days. Besides that, the carving is exceptionally well done and eye catching.
