In honor of Dr. Tobias Funke, today is officially all Blue all the time. While we're on the subject we'd be remiss not to mention Blue's neighbor, the Switch Building which we first reported on back in April. From the Real Deal:
The concept of "switch" applies to the design of the front and rear facades, said Mimi Hoang, one of the partners at nArchitects. "The front has a series of bay windows, which angle back and forth to create different views up and down the street," she said. The rear balconies also switch from side to side, depending on the floor.
The non-doorman Switch building will have a ground-floor art gallery with double-height sky-lit space in the rear. The second to fifth floors each contain a two-bedroom, two-bath, 1,450-square-foot apartment, with modern appliances, terraces or balconies. They start at $1.3 million. A 1,900-square-foot duplex penthouse with terrace will cost $2.2 million, said Avi Voda, executive vice president at Prudential Douglas Elliman. The boutique building will have elevators that open into each apartment.Oh L.E.S., we hardly knew ye. A few bonus pictures after the jump.
