DWELL: A CONTEXTUAL BROWNSTONE ADDITION


The developer at 243 West 122nd Street will be expanding the brownstone a couple of floors but has decided to keep things classic.  A rendering of the final design has been posted out front on the plywood and everything looks like it will be contextual to the original architectural plans.  Instead of trying to reinvent what is already an iconic Harlem house, this restoration will basically entail duplicating the lower floors and raising the cornice to the new top level.  At the end, there will be 7 units in all but it is unclear if this updated construction will be used as rentals or condos.
