St. Paul Court Apartments

As you zoom south on St. Paul Street, you might not notice the St. Paul Court Apartments, just south of 33rd Street on the right. It's a five-story building surrounding a center court with green lawn and fountains. And, it's a P&L building!
The planning began in 1924, with an announcement of the impending building in the Sun. 
Most of the apartments are one bedroom and one bathroom, with a living area and kitchen. Others are two bedrooms, with living area and walk-in closets. 
It was well-located between downtown and the inner suburbs, and on a main bus line, convenient for getting to your downtown office. As time went on, they became the place to have a pied-a-terre if you had a country house, or lived someplace else during the winters or summers. 
In 1924, the building changed hands. 
The courtyard, which is mentioned above, and in the name of the building, provides a nice space for outside living. 
It's now occupied mainly by students at Johns Hopkins, which is a block or two away. It has laundry and other services on the premise, so that's a convenience, as are the shops across the street.
