Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
The boarded up building at 2066 Fifth Avenue had a lot of construction happening on site this past year but it was soon revealed that a new building would replace the older one. A couple of Bespoke readers have recently taken photos of this corner by West 127th Street this past weekend and the facade has now finally been revealed. Check out the photo after the jump.
It would have been nice to have the older building restored but the final design of the new arrival does an okay job at trying to be modern and contextual. Large casement windows make the standard balcony layout a little more interesting than usual and the brickwork has some pattern work to it which is quite interesting. One would have to guess that this would be a new condo development but we have not found out much about how this building will be marketed in the future. Any tips?
