This is the second of a two-part series on responsible land use in Center Township. This relatively new structure also happens to sit on an odd-shaped lot, located on College Avenue in Fletcher Place:
The building, known as Fletcher Place Terrace, currently houses a law firm and 6 apartment units. I won’t speak to the Comic Sans font on the firm’s logo (ok, I just did). However, the designers did a nice job of constructing a new building that actually looks new, and yet not out of place with the surrounding neighborhood.
Yes, there are are a few parking spaces to the side and back. But they are unobtrusive in general. In addition, there is not parallel parking on the east side of College Avenue in this section of Fletcher Place, so this small lot was probably unavoidable. Â The windows let in a good amount of light, and it feels welcoming to the visitor or pedestrian.
I can’t wait to see more from Blackline Studio. Â They have the right people involved. Â The Fletcher Arts proposal has grown on me, after a much-neededÂ 2nd redesign. Â Let’s see more creative land use solutions, and less plopping of boxes in a sea of asphalt.
