Does anyone have any info on this new building on Hubert St.? Pictures very welcome! Thanks.

Thanks for the reminder. I haven't seen this building in quite some time. It is (that dreaded word) contextual with a nearby commercial to residential retofit on Hudson. The last time I saw it, they were just beginning the facade, and I remember thinking it wasn't bad.

No photos, but here's a link

It is really quite a beauty. This is one building and one neighborhood I would move to in a minute.

The Hubert will be ready for occupancy this summer. It borders Collister St, a narrow two-block long alley running parallel to Hudson St. Unlike some of the other contextual new buildings in the area, this one looks terrific, mainly because of the quality brick and stone work. A few years of sooty-patina, and it will look just like the originals.

I think this topic should be moved to Real Estate.

Looks good. That is such a cool area.

It looks pretty nice to live in with those gigantic windows. Probably 3 or 4 times my price range though.

Cool building. It looks like an h/o scale railroad kit building, old-fashioned styled but still an imitation nevertheless. The plastic look is interesting among the authentic buildings.

How does it look plastic?

The brick is blemish free, it has a false look to it, not unlike the look of plastic railroad building models. Nothing nautral weathering couldn't fix, Im sure.

As far as the plastic buildings go you would use an airbrush to make em' look more realistic.

I like the building. It looks like it will very high ceilings, though. That is a surprise. It seems as if most residential skyscrapers have much lower ceilings.
