The figures from the club Azteca Facade must be the focal point.

Something definitely tied to Club Azteca's heritage, music, crafts, and food, etc. I would love to see features of the Azteca Facade, if not making the building on that site out of a similar facade, and definitely restoring the figures and club name from the wall. For another Cleveland example look to the restoration and preservation of the Zoo's Pachyderm House figures by Cleveland artist Viktor Schreckengost, which were removed when the building was demolished and remounted in front of the Natural History museum.

The design is very nice overall. If possible, I'd love to see a green roof atop the one-story part. That would improve the view for residents as well. It would also be nice for the architect to design a distinct matching bus shelter. Residents (seniors, rent controlled) would use it daily. There's precedent just down the street at 65th and Detroit, although learn from their mistakes and don't put holes in the roof. But the street-level for this project looks inviting and it has the potential to revitalize this section of Detroit Ave, and a matching shelter would complete the look.
