Flaherty and archetectural excellence, one typical one atypical, surprising at first, but there is an explanation.

First, Kansas City, here, the lead rendering says "Flaherty" all over it. Busy, busy, busy. Schlock, schlock, schlock.

As in, typical.

But wow, something restrained, senior housing, in Vincennes, Indiana. A restrained hand. Atypical.

And for a reason:

The Vincennes Education Fondation and Vision Communities collaborated to make Clark’s Crossing a reality.

The project re-uses the old Clark Middle School and Adams Coliseum buildings. The development relied on the sale of historic tax credits and rental housing tax credits to turn the two buildings into a senior living facility in the middle of downtown Vincennes.

Flaherty & Collins will manage the property.

Yes. An old middle school. Redone. No wonder it looks less ugly than that thing in Ramsey Town Center.

They did not start with a clean slate.
