Blending Old With New

The top photo is the older original strip of commercial buildings and the more recent construction across the street is below. Besides the difference in height they did a decent job integrating the new construction into the neighborhood. It's built to the sidewalk and there are first floor commercial uses as with the older buildings.  There was  also a somewhat halfhearted attempt to break up the large, singular building by modulating the facade and painting the different sections a variety of colors.
