The McAlpin Apartment House has served as the less attractive sister to the Biltmore apartment building for almost 90 years. But she just got a little cuter with a much needed facelift.
|The McAplin (foreground) and the Biltmore. This morning shot shows the new brown color that is being added to the building's facade by its new owner who is renovating both buildings.|

|Once the bricks were painted, the decorative elements were addressed. With the building being a darker color, these elements look like they did before the building was painted (see photo from 1951 here).|
|The color is a little darker in the afternoon sun.|
