Everyone's been fairly tight-lipped about the design of the apartment high-rise going up at 200 East 79th Street, except for some limited vague adjectives like "contemporary" and "classic" used at the building's bare bones marketing site. Andrew Fine snapped some recent pics of the exterior, however, that shows the pre-cast stone facade going into place. More revealing is the placement of a miniature model of the building above some of the sidewalk shed scaffolding. Interesting that the developers would build a five foot tall model for display on the street, but not release any renderings of the building's design online. Perhaps a little mystery has served their purpose here.
