Eyebrows and the monocles resting upon them were raised at the sight of Gramercy 19. The 16-unit project, which involves taking an old three-story building up to seven glassy floors in all, is located at the corner of 19th Street and Third Avenue, right on the edge of Block Beautiful and its grab bag of architectural gems. We weren't sure if the rendering making the rounds was accurate, but it's looking more and more like that's the case, and the vibe is definitely different from some of the neighbors. Halstead reps tell us a model unit is being assembled and the building will launch in about two months.
