Density Commeth

Sean Gilligan (and architect, Traveston Elliot) does it again. He's provided terrifically priced, well designed urban homes in a high value area. These are the first renderings I have seen for this project and I have nothing but positive things to say. Let's hope the prices remain friendly unlike the 25% last minute increase seen in the originally 100% reserved, but hardly inhabited $200+/sq. ft. Roma Condos.

But (there's always a but), is this really the best location for this type of use - across from a regional transportation hub? Time will tell.

Sounds good to me.

The bell tolls for ABQ... but in a good way.

As a person who lives in a Sean Gilligan-designed and -built house, I will tell you that he is, perhaps, the worst person for this project. Sean's done a good job of getting the ball rolling but his properties are poorly constructed and he's built a reputation for himself as someone who does not, under any circumstance, clean up any of the messes that he accumulates. A step in the right direction? Yes. But by the right group of people? Maybe not.
