Is this a Greek temple rising on the former site of the much-missed Arlington Road post office? No, it's a stick-built residential building going up. Which means the garage parking is above-ground, rather than underneath the building. We hope these piles of offerings will be pleasing to the gods, nevertheless.

The finished building will house 140 luxury apartments, and 7000 square feet of retail. For that retail, there will be a generous 35 parking spaces. One artist rendering showed 3 retail units on the building's ground floor: a boutique, and two restaurants.
