It's been over a year since we checked in on the condo building rising at 241 Fifth Avenue, but Andrew Fine has just sent over an update, noting that the 20-story building appears to be topped out. Fine also points out that 241 Fifth has completely covered a wall of south-facing windows on its office building neighbor at 245 Fifth Avenue. "The darkness of winter has come early and it is permanent," he writes. "[...] Just another glimmer of light, snuffed out by life, as-of-right, in New York City." Fine wonders if 241's south-facing windows will one day face the same fate.
Details about the condos at 241 Fifth are sparse, but let's review. Victor Homes is erecting the structure, and StreetEasy lists the architect as Perkins Eastman. (UPDATE: The architect is actually ODA.) The 42-48 condo units will cost $2 to $2.5 million. Have more intel? The tipline is open.
