732 Lamont Street is an example of what I consider to be good development from the point of view of aesthetics. For a while there, though, I had my doubts. It was a work site where a previous developer attempted to take a two-story apartment building and add an additional floor. However, as many developments in the area, construction stalled and the building sat vacant and blighted for a while.
Fortunately, construction ramped back up with the goal of creating eleven 1 and 2 bedroom condos. What I like most about the building is how the addition of a floor didn’t alter the character of the building. In looking at it today few would guess that it wasn’t a three-story building to begin with. I truly wish other developers would approach redevelopment of the community in the same spirit.
