☞ DWELL: 753 St. Nicholas Avenue Condos
One open lot that has also recently seen activity will actually become a distinct condominium on historic landmark nabe of Sugar Hill in West Harlem. The architect Michael Schmitt (who worked on the new development on the old carpenter's block at 150th Street) had to go through the landmarks commission to get this one started. The building is distinctly modern but has classic mixed stonework and an oriel bay window-like extension out front. The six floor, 11,500 square foot new building will have a single elevator inside and a total of 12 units. For those who thought they couldn't build modern in a landmark district, here's the proof that it can be done. The foundation was coming along quickly as of last week after what seemed like a year of inactivity (top photo). Check out the architect's website for more details: LINK or our original post on the carpenter's block around the corner from this property: LINK. The closest train to this location is the A,B,C,D at 145th Street. Current photo by Ulysses.
