  1. That’s good. Those towers in the background are quite atrocious! I can imagine the area had more charm back when it was an open horizon!

    Yes, Kanani, any new structure or renovation would have to be harmonious.

  3. I love the old architecture. But what a contrast to the tall high rises behind! Just wondering, is there a historical preservation code in effect? Does whomever bought that airy workingman’s cottage have to renovate in the same style?
