Arquitectonica’s row of contemporary townhomes has punched up a mixed-residential block in the Museum District since 1986. Remodeled in 2004, this tower-tipped end unit’s natural lighting gets a boost from a tented skylight in the roofline ridge (at right), framed-in-color glass brick accents, and expanded east-facing windows on two levels.
The property popped onto the market Tuesday, priced at $446,000. It’s been for sale before, with no luck — most recently a little more than a year ago. Back in February 2010, under a different broker from the same agency, it sported an asking price of $650,000; several reductions and 18 months later, the listing expired last September at $495,000.

There’s a small, fenced patio off the back of the unit, which has a carport facing Graustark St. two blocks south of its namesake bridge over the Southwest Fwy.

Although the unit is part of a line-up of (towerless) lookalikes fronting Graustark, its address cues off the cross street:
