Dead-Ass Proposal of the Week-- July 3rd ***300th Post!!***

Q Condominium

 622 North 2nd Street

                      Holy shit look at that crazy motherfucker!! This nutty-looking building was going to be a revolutionary killer-structure that would bring Philadelphia architecture into the 28th Century. Unfortunately, the building's own crappy developer was its downfall.

  1. Wow, that is an atrocity. Even if it was a piece of networking equipment (like a router or cable modem), it would look bad.

  2. I think it could look good, perhaps, but I'd have some concerns. Mainly: what's going on at ground level? That's where most people will see it from, after all. A long narrow staircase going up into the building is not very inviting. The empty space surrounding it seems like it would be filled with landscaping in the best case and a parking lot in the worst-- neither of which is conducive to human activity. In other words, a fortress in the sky.
