Over at 140 College Avenue, framing is underway on a 3,800 sq ft, 12-bedroom addition to the historic John Snaith House. The project is designed by local architect Jason Demarest and developed by Po Family Realty, a smaller Collegetown landlord.

This house at 205 College Avenue seems confused. Before the extremely vivid paint job and mix-and-match additions, it looked like this, and a photo from January 2014, with the paint but without the additions, is included below. I really don’t know what to make of it. I dunno how long the Lowers have been sitting on permits for this one, but I didn’t see anything go through the city boards.

205 kind of scares me, yikes.

205 is an aesthetic atrocity and one can only hope it becomes a casualty of the Collegetown real estate boom as soon as possible.

As for the 140 addition, it would’ve looked nicer in brick, to match the old house. Sigh.
