2 cheap replacements for a house that burned down.

I like this apartment building. Kind of a German-Alpine feel to it.

Just keep building on top of that porch

University Towers stands amongst a scattered collection of houses. BR I-94 ROW carved a pretty large chunk out of the neighborhood

Where Hayward gets his groceries. Nothing is more classy than a store with a spirited rat as its logo.

Wait. Where is "Crawford House"? That is the only thing I don't recognize in these photos.

Yes...nice tour. That area was also my hood for a year in undergrad. I lived in an apartment on Walnut Ave about half a block north of S. Uni. (east of Washtenaw about 2-3 blocks).

It was a good area, but I would often get seduced by Pinball Pete's on my way home from classes, and therefore waste a couple hours and about $10.

Note: S. Uni. always acted a strong wind tunnel on windy winter days and could get so strong it could take away your breath. Not to mention once actually blowing out a ground floor retail window in U. Towers.

Thanks for the tour. It's good to see people out on the streets even in bad weather.

Unless it's much below freezing, we don't make much difference between good and bad weather. We take the winter as a given. :)

Today's been brutally cold, though.

BTW did anyone notice what beautiful building in these photos will be demolished? :(

The Amsterdammer Phase 1. (built in 1997) Phase II was never built, which is why it has that horrible detached fire escape.

That's a new construction? I guess looking closer I can see that, but at first glance you'd never be able to tell.

Who was the architect, do you know?

I used to have the website with the original rendering, but I can't find it now. The building has 1997 etched into the top of it, that's why I know the date. It was sandblasted to look a bit older. Although, the ground floor storefront is relatively new, as the original one I believe wasn't all that great. They also did that 4 story brick building near East Quad found near the end of this thread.

Wonderful pics, Wolve. I recognized the buildings, but not the tenants. When I was in school (during the late Jurassic), it seemed like the only "cuisine" was pizza, made by Greek immigrants. All of the Asian restaurants are a needed corrective.
