It probably expresses it materials better then any other project in town. THIS is cementboard.

Q. What, what? A. In da butt.
Is it possible that they're waiting for the weather to warm up to give it a final paint job? It looks a little splotchy, at least in the photos, so that may be just the primer coat.
based on the night time image is also supposed to be shiny and reflecting moonlit clouds... but I agree it looks like they'll probably paint it and it will look better.Anondson wrote:Based on the images on the apartment's website there must be a coat of paint coming.

It does appear to be occupied. I've seen people moving in. I don't think they have finished painting it (at least as of last weekend). I think they plan to paint it a gray, but there were definitely concrete board panels that had not been touched, and there were still spaces under some of the windows where you could see the tyvek wrap. I've notice that painting seems to be taking a long time for a number of projects that are just about finished. I imagine part of it has to do with not painting in the cold, but it has been relatively warm for a while now.lordmoke wrote:This appears to be complete and occupied? I couldn't tell for sure- it was dark out when I was in the area.
That's a great idea that would add a three dimensional quality and work with the brick better. Not very expensive either.Architorture wrote:I'm looking forward to seeing it painted. On the images tt looks like there may be different sheens on panels. Could be a cool subtle way to add detail to it.
