Photos of NoJo Rowhomes

On Friday I swung by NoJo Rowhomes before work and took some photos since I know how much you love my crappy photography. One of these days I’ll get a Flip HD video camera and start posting crappy videos :).

Your comments on it are mixed. But I like it. Plans are from Pb Elemental after all.

If I were buying now I’d definitely consider it. Actually, I’ve been considering townhomes more and more recently. It might be my rapidly expanding ski + bike collection that is forcing me to consider more space.

Of course I liked the west townhomes more than the east ones. The west ones aren’t on 12th, have a bigger “yard” and the top floors have somewhat of a west facing view (a must for me):

If I had designed these townhomes I would have flipped the 2nd and 3rd floors so that the master suite and bath was on the 2nd floor and the kitchen + living room was on the 3rd. I then would have put a roof top deck on accessible from the 3rd floor. Why? If only one floor is going to get a view I’d much rather it be the kitchen + living room. I spend almost no time in my bedroom. I could care less or not if it has a view as I leave my blinds down most of the time (I’m the perfect candidate for the now popular open one bedroom floor plans.)

While the units have some nice touches like concrete floors on the ground floor, modern looking fireplace, metal hand rail and a few other touches I wish they had pushed the modern envelop a little more. More concrete, more glass, more metal and a few more risks in the bathroom and kitchen.

The staging features art work by Greg Boudreau; I have one of his pieces in my living room.

About Matt

Matt , Urbnlivn's publisher, has a love for lofts with industrial features and new construction condos that is only eclipsed by his passion for outdoor sports and urban living. Phrases such as “polished concrete” and “exposed brick” are music to his ears. You can also find Matt on Twitter or skiing.

    I would worry about the exterior detailing on those townhomes. It looks like hardie board with too many gaps (I'm guessing from looking at them). While the pattern is nice it leaves the weather resistant barrier (building paper) underneath exposed to U.V. rays which degrade it. I looked in close and noticed they painted the siding after they went up and there is overspray on the W.R.B. which is also a big no-no. While they look nice, details like that make me worry that corners were cut in lots of important places you can't see. The two most common lawsuits in residential construction are water/ moisture penetration and sound transmittance in that order. I worry about the former on these.
