The Museum of African Art may be patient, but we're not. So we were pretty excited to come across a set of photos of 1280 Fifth Avenue in the Curbed flickr pool. The forgotten Robert A.M. Stern project at 110th Street consists of 115 luxury condos above the museum -- which has spent about 25 years waiting for a permanent home -- and construction was supposed be done last year. That's, um, not quite the case. But according to the 1280 Fifth answering machine, the on-site sales office will open in "spring 2010." And in the meantime, we're kind of digging Bobby A.M.'s design for that facade.
