Walking by a shell at 152nd West 128th Street, we noticed that a sidewalk shed had been posted up with new renovation plans for the existing 4-story building.  DOB permits show that an additional two stories will be built on top and the rendering shows that the developer will keep things contextual with the red brick building just east of 7th Avenue.  Those two new additional floors will replicate the existing levels and the cornice will be added back on top.  It appears more design conscience redevelopment is finally happening uptown these days with existing buildings and those restoring the brownstone blocks of Harlem are finally getting the importance of keeping things contextual.
