Here we have another reader report on another new development rising in East Harlem, about six blocks north of our previous report. Our staccato tipster says of the place, La Casa Brava: "Across the street from Harlem's Mysterious Wrapped Building. 118th and 2nd Avenue. Gentrifying at lightening speed. The buildings next door, former HDFC, have also been beatifully renovated."
After the jump, a peek at the shrouded construction site. Then hit the developer's marketing site for more renderings—hard to tell if this is genius architecture or looming monstrosity. Oddly, we're sort of feeling the former.
