Studio Sofield is doing this? It could be very interesting then. I was wondering when he’d follow up the brilliant 135 E. 79th. Looking forward to a masonry facade.

Still no updated renderings on these two sites. Quite surprising.

renderings for the smaller tower have been available, a stunning design by Isaac&Stern. This is the latest one from their website, which is updated from the ones released years ago.

nothing here yet however.

We shouldn’t count on it looking like the Isaac and Stern design.

Nice! Limestone and not brick. The ugly 70s-90s high rises in that neighborhood will finally get broken up with something classic.

This project hauled in just a few months. Coming out quite nicely. Fits with the neighborhood character IMO.
