    Looks better than I expected.

    Default For those of you who are wondering "What the hell is a Chancery?" -

    From our friends at Wikipedia -

    A chancery is the type of building that houses a diplomatic mission or an embassy. The building can house one or several different nations' missions. The term derives from chancery or chancellery, the office of a Chancellor. Some nations title the head of foreign affairs a Chancellor, and chancery eventually became a common referent to the main building of an embassy. The ambassador's quarters are generally referred to as the Residence.

    I feel like something was lost in translation here, although maybe once the construction elevator comes down it will all make more sense.

    Not the most inviting streetscape.
