I'm hopeful that we might be able to add the Pearl Laundry building to the list soon.

Agreed. IMO 144 Park style townhomes would have looked better, especially considering the other nearby brick buildings (iE. the hospital) are of this reddish-brown brick.

Id love to see this happen more throughout the region.  But I have a massive soft spot for brownstone type buildings
