little bit of Chicago style, nice. I wonder if the white material is masonry or prefab or some other material?
This is a Karl Fischer type design (same architect) which often is ‘design-on-a-budget’ architecture/construction; nice work, practical, functional designs. I believe he is a partner in the architectural firm that designed this building here at 69 Adams Street - but that needs fact checking.
That being said: not real marble, or limestone - it will be ‘composite’ prefabricated stone panels. The composite stone panels look fine: often indistinguishable from real limestone or other ‘real’ quarried stone.
Yea, it’s a ‘Karl Fischer joint’ . Here is an example of one of his ‘typical’ buildings.
This is a good example of Karl Fischer in NYC.

i kind of like the as of right version better. Better human scale at street level. And more appropriate to clear the Chicago style inspiration. It doesn’t seem like they get 65% more GFA out of the rezoned designed, but I guess a rendering from a different angle would be enlightening.
