oh boy am I catching this area at a good time
just a year ago, when I moved in, this stretch of real estate–especially the blocks adjacent to the Bowery–felt a little lackluster
but there are some great projects underway which will give the whole neighborhood some gleam
152 Elizabeth is another little gem that I just love, going up a block east
Construction Update: 75 Kenmare
This is something special: and has a very unusual design team.
Interior design by Lenny Kravitz: the famed musician. This residential building has turned out nicely: inside & out. I like to see ‘modern architecture’ that has all the texture, detail, and artful refinements of traditional/classical architecture: this project is ‘contemporary’ without looking cold, bland or boring.
Modern architecture is often not much more than a glass/metal box, and when done with refinement that look is fine: but this is the kind of modern architecture I prefer to see - much more pleasing to the eye.
