Construtction watch: 363 Lafayette St.



Here's an in-progress look at 363 Lafayette St., the 10-floor, mixed-used building that's nearing a full reveal at Great Jones...



Ironstate Development is behind this project. Their work in the neighborhood includes The Jefferson, the condoplex at the site of the former Mystery Lot. Another familiar name in these parts, Morris Adjmi, is the architect of record. (He designed the building proposed for the Second Avenue explosion site.)

...and here are renderings via SK Development...





The 363 website lists that seven of the 10 floors have been leased.

I may be one of the few commenters here who is ok with new development, as long as its tasteful and fairly to scale - i.e. A 7 story building among 6 story walk ups is ok in my opinion.

But this just looks like an uninspired office block from post-war Northern Europe. You could insert this building into the background of a Sean Connery era 007 film and I'd assume we were in West Berlin...

It's amazing what's happening to Lafayette Street. With the new construction, upscale restaurants and shops it's Soho in Noho... Snoho!

Other new buildings on that block have done well to blend in and look good. How did this monstrosity get approved?

It's kind of ugly. Why is this firm into ugly colors? Just accentuates the ugly blahness/clunkiness of the design.
