I'm sorry to say, it really is unappealing. It makes that intersection feel very cramped. My heart starts to tighten as I pass through. I just try to ignore it and go on my way... like I do most places here in Atlanta.
Are we now equating the Viridian to Walmart? Come on guys, there is, hopefully, a little bit of diversity along 30-A, and there is room for more diversity. Alys Beach certainly didn't seem to" fit in" when first developed, and now it's an integral part of the fabric. I think that the proliferation of "monster houses" in Grayton was a far more diabolical development than the Viridian's attempt to add another color to the palette of architecture along our hallowed thouroughfare.
