Sorry if all I’m doing is cutting and pasting from articles you’ve probably already in the paper, but I’m distracted today.
Anyway, I thought this was funny and odd, so I’m passing it along. It is either a clever idea, or a sign of the apocalypse.
From the Boston Herald:
If you’ve always wanted to live in Brookline, but can’t afford the $1 million median home price, now is your chance.
All you have to do is move to Charlotte, N.C.
“It’s such a cool area,” said developer Daniel Bartok, who is building Brookline – a gated community in North Carolina inspired by the “timeless homes” of Brookline, Mass. “It’s really where I got my inspiration.” …
… The town’s stately collection of American Georgian Revival homes made from brick and stone gave way to Bartok’s vision for the 55-acre development of 257 single-family homes advertised from $275,000 to $355,000.
And, in future news, “John Henry proposes teardown”.
