12 Commercial Street

 
Village at Red Inn

The Village at the Red Inn, a 1985 condo complex at 12 Commercial Street, occupies a large lot. And the buildings — modeled on lighthouses? — are unlike just about anything else in town. But it is set back far enough, with a white gravel parking lot as a buffer, that it’s not too disruptive of the classical West End scale when seen from Commercial Street. 

The staggered massing also helps break down its visual bulk. Pressley Associates were the landscape architects. The porch gables frame expansive views.
