The Fairchild's In Hot Water

New, 5 comments

What could have possibly gone so wrong at Tribeca new development The Fairchild that led the building, aka 55 Vestry Street, to so blithley build its elevator bulkhead to such an unseemly, unapproved height? Or to install casement, rather than double-hung, windows? Let's see... hmmm... from Downtown Express: "But placing the blame in this case is not a simple matter, because the architect for the project switched in the middle. Joseph Pell Lombardi designed the building and shepherded it through the approvals process, including landmarks approval, but architect Karl Fischer took over shortly after construction began." [Downtown Express, previously]
