This building is a great idea. I can envision my in-laws buying in a place like this, for example. My father-in-law is always complaining about the constant upkeep on their pool, suburban spread, etc. My mother-in-law marvels at her ability to walk everywhere when she is visiting us here in Philly. Some people live in places where they can actually walk to the store? Really? They are dyed-in-the-wool suburbanites but their kids (and now grandkids) live in Philly, Boston and D.C.
“The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists.” -Charles Dickens
