Close, not quite though

This is recent Lafayette Square infill on Park Ave.  Decent looking for a new Mansard, but still stands out as a little odd looking.  I don't think the Mansard is part of a third floor, thereby making it a Faux-sard.  I like to be able to get all up in my Mansard and walk around (the original point of a Mansard- it's a functioning level of the house).  At least these 3 units looks proportionate and attractive.  I like the paint colors too.  Notice the cool Richardsonian Queen Anne to the left of the nouveau Mansard.
