I'm going to pile my praise on as well. Perfect for the area. And soon it'll be close to a subway station too.
It was a little hard to make out just by looking at the renders, but the exterior material is brick. I can't think of anything else with white brick. Especially that much of it. Here's hoping the colour of the final product ends up true to the renders.
The materials for this one are white brick and glass, with some aluminium panelling. I'm looking forward to that white brick!
There is a ton of potential for Centre Street N. Especially with a train station going in at 9th and one at 16th.
Have you seen the illustrations the city has done for the area around 16 Avenue Subway Station? It looks like a mini East Village. A couple illustrations show an urban format Save On Foods with midrise residential on top, another has a bulbous glass structure rising out of the empty lot on the SE corner (apparently where the main station head will be), and all of them show a hell of a lot of density planned for the area.
Do share them if you have them. Or at least the link. I'm very curious as well.
