Why America’s New Apartment Buildings All Look the Same - Bloomberg Businessweek

Recommended Posts



Details the history and reasons for the proliferation of apartment mid-rises with five stick-built floors over one concrete podium (five-over-one) and the apartment wrap known as the "Texas doughnut." And of course these buildings are a high fire risk before walls and sprinklers are installed, as we saw with the total loss of the unfinished mid-rise at W. Dallas and Montrose.


Thought HAIF would appreciate the article.
