now with even more funk !

Okay – now THIS is the way you deal with beautiful old buildings. Rather than plowing them down and building crap construction bullshit thats going to be falling apart in 4 and a half years, you utilize the essential architectural features in the new build. Man, I wish this would happen more often in the City.

Heres a nearby apartment building with a similar “H” shaped layout. This is what the above apartment looked like before being scraped out.

  • judging by the signage on the building pre-renovation, this was a hotel. By the way, the housing being built here is $240,000 and up condos….not very affordable, and one wonders how deep the market for these is

  • uhhh, yeah…
    for the sake of the Madison Lenox and every other similar case of “unsalvageable” blgs, lemme just say…
