E Pluribus Anus

Judging by the symbol above the door,  Greendale Community College has opened a satellite campus in our neighborhood.  Or perhaps it's the Asterisk Luxury* Apartments.
*Not actually luxurious.

Is it new construction, or a rehab?

Old building, new paint job. Because somebody saw that symbol and thought, "This should be brown."

I bet no one here is old enough to know this but me, at least not at first-hand, but on "Ben Casey", the exceedingly popular doctor drama of the early 60s, the opening sequence showed a vertical row of symbols being chalked on a blackboard, while Sam Jaffe's most High-Lama-esque voice slowly intoned their meanings.
"Man... Woman... Birth... Death... Infinity". Your new neighbors have "Birth" over their entrance. College of Midwifery, maybe? Home for Wayward Girls?

I saw that first hand too. Can't remember the symbol for death 'though. [looks] Ah. A + sign. Or a crucifix?

My guess is the 'phone co. put that on the bldg.
