The Delmar Loop and its Environs, Revisited

The Loop still has some great architecture, and the street is still busy with the construction of the trolley moving further east. Narrowing the street to encourage pedestrian traffic is a winning formula, even as it is still considered to be counter-intuitive. Thinking that more lanes will solve traffic problems is the false belief.

There are homes in the Loop as well, but they’re increasingly becoming student housing. These were just renovated. The windows on the buildings in the background look bad.

Down at the other end of the Loop, in the city, is this stunner of an apartment building. Looks like some major tuckpointing was going on on the top floor.

  1. Thank you for pointing out the hideous windows on the renovated WU buildings on Wash Ave. I walked by them every day for a year and always said they look awful.
