In Rittenhouse


The other day, we were out visiting a lovely triumvirate of new homes at 21st & Rodman and we barely made it half a block before a project at 2100 Lombard St. popped back onto our development radar. As you cans see, these projects sit basically on the same block,

Isn't it fun when the Spring of Deception rears its head, only to then suddenly whip you back towards the icy throes of Third Winter? Sometimes it is, actually, like the other day when our inappropriate jacket selection caused us to take an unexpected route in hopes of avoiding the
