New deets on the Morris Adjmi-designed building at 837 Washington that was finally approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission last month: it's both a case study for playing nice with the LPC and an example of landmark limitations. The I-beam will be the primary visual trick of the twisty tower, pivoting each floor "as if a motion blur on a passing train" on the High Line. MePa neighbors aren't quite getting the memo, though. Resident Adam Kost says of the vertical addition onto the former meatpacking factory, "It's always tough to polish a sneaker." [WSJ; previously]
