ECHO PARK — No mossy green or pastel peach for the Blackbird project. Painters have begun to spray on a coat of black paint on the townhouses that are expected to go on sale soon. But that black paint is not your common shade of black.
It’s a custom color designed by project architect Barbara Bestor, said developer Casey Lynch. Only 11 of the homes will be dressed up in Barbara Bestor black; the remaining seven homes will be clad in white sheets of standing seam metal, Lynch said.
Prices for the hillside project, under the city’s small lot ordinance, near Vestal and Baxter avenues have not been determined, Lynch said. But two of the homes, which range is size from about 1,300 square-feet to more than 1,900 square-feet, will be offered to individuals on the project’s list of interested buyers.
