The Saxum Elf has returned. On Sunday, Dec. 14, the 12-foot tall figure  again took up residency on the roof of 475 Bloomfield Ave.

This is #TheSaxumElf’s second to last stop this holiday season. This year #TheSaxumElf chose four vantage points from the Saxum portfolio to engage with communities and bring an abundance of holiday spirit. Saxum will continue to update their social media accounts with his movements. If you see the elf, take a picture and share it with the hashtag #TheSaxumElf.”
