"A House Without an Aaddress"

If all goes well, you might see a 92-year-old house drive by you in the coming months. (Suddenly pedicabs and horse-drawn carriages don't seem so strange, eh?)
Super-swell and ultra-eco-urban local developer LJUrban ›› is looking for a home for, well, a home. The house in question, built in 1915 by A.G. Tremoureaux for J. Johnson, sits near the corner of 27th & V Streets in the Midtown neighborhood of Newton Booth.
"But why," you ask, "is the house being moved?"
LJUrban is in the planning and pre-construction phase of an especially exciting multi-unit attached housing project in Newton Booth (our neighbors across the street, David Mogavero and Craig Stradley of Mogavero Notestine Associates ›› architects, have been getting their hands dirty with the LJUrban crew on this and other projects). Rather than simply demolishing the structure--something that has happened all too many times in the central city--Levi Benkert and his amazing team are doing what they can to preserve the neighborhood "chi" by saving what others would dismiss as an old, unremarkable structure.
Thanks, LJUrbanites! ♦
