Big Win for Harlem Children's Museum Topped by Apartments

New, 11 comments

It's been a day of interesting architectural reveals, but here's one that looks a lot more likely to get built than a castle of capitalism fashioned out of shipping containers or whatever the hell this is. Up on the Harlem/Washington Heights border, DNAinfo reports that a $70 million plan to build a 13-story mashup of a museum and affordable housing just scored a key rezoning victory. Located at West 155th Street and St. Nicholas Place, the 124-unit building would also be the home of the Faith Ringgold Children's Museum of Art and Storytelling. Its builder, the Broadway Housing Communities, hopes to break ground in 2012. Another view after the jump.
