Substantial apartment building along the park in a substantial neighborhood. But the knock-out is the art nouveau entrance, quite unique. Would love to get inside.

What a hidden gem this is. If you are in the neighborhood, it totally worth it to make the detour and admire its unique architecture, reminding of Gaudi in Barcelona. It was a delight to come across it and recommend it.
