Walking by Number 131 West 122nd Street by the proposed Mount Morris Park Historic District Extension in past week, we noticed plywood with a new rendering placed out front.  It appears the trend for keeping the facade intact but expanding on the roof has finally taken hold uptown.  This renovation will restore what is currently existing but will add more space with modern additions on the penthouse level.  Many developers would have in the past made unusual alterations to the original design but the most contextual update now is to just build up on top were the changes will not be seen at street level.

  1. I like this solution. It adds value without ruining the look of the neighborhood.
