Blue is IN on Delaware

Delaware Avenue sports a few powder blue residential buildings and recently got a heavy dose of blue glass at Avant.  Not to be outdone, owner Righteous Babe Records has joined in with the building at 340 Delaware Avenue south of Tupper Street. 

There’s not much to say here.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  The City and public generally have no say in paint schemes outside of preservation districts.  An irate emailer isn’t pleased however:

Can you believe this??  This is the former Naples Insurance Building.  The dryvit was a neutral beige pretty much matching up with the adjacent buildings.  How the hell does this kind of disaster happen in our city?  We are a joke!!!!!

Design Review Anyone?

Update:

I just heard from Starlight Gallery- the ‘offensive blue’ is indeed a primer and is background for a mural being painted on the building…more to come.   –WCP
