Sure, the rendering isn’t all that surprising, but we’ve gone almost one year without knowing what the three new townhouses would look like at 357-361 Henry Street between Amity and Congress. (The project actually received a Stop Work Order for doing work without Landmarks permission.) Architect duties on the project recently switched from BKSK Architects to PACS Architecture. Paul Cepece, the partner in charge of the project, tells us that the above image (and a few more after the jump) were designed by BKSK and approved by Landmarks. PACS was subsequently hired to complete the project and redesign certain aspects of the interior, while maintaining the original BKSK facades. This is a busy corner as far as new construction goes: the former Lamm Institute is still under construction and the new build at 110 Amity just lost its scaffolding. Click through to see more renderings and a photo of the progress at the construction site.

The permanent signage for Nordstrom Rack and T.J.Maxx went up on the front on the Offerman Building at 505 Fulton Street last week. Nordstrom Rack is prepping for its opening next week on Thursday, May 1. T.J.Maxx is still “coming soon” — and it probably will be soon. We saw an ad on a bus […]
