Construction in New York City can be a dangerous occupation, and unfortunately, Juan Chinchillo lost his life on September 21st, when he fell from 161 Maiden Lane, aka 1 Seaport. While the project has been on hold for two months while the Department of Buildings investigated, they have now partially lifted the stop-work orders imposed after the accident, and work appears to be resuming on the tower.
Renderings have been revealed for the four-story 836 Monroe Street development in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The new design has a classical touch, with a fluted pilaster in the center of the façade. Other notable elements are the framed faux-balconies, and light design. Joshua Felix of Beam Group is responsible for the facade.
