Early last month, the residential conversion of the 24-story commercial building at 212 Fifth Avenue, in NoMad, was underway, and now Curbed has uncovered new exterior and interior renderings of the project. Forty-eight condominiums are being carved out of the existing structure, and the units will be large, with some measuring 1,500 square feet, and larger configurations measuring north of 4,000 square feet. Madison Equities and Thor Equities are developing, while Helpern Architects is designing. Sales have already launched, and completion is expected next spring.

Robert Moses irrevocably altered Sunset Park when he ran the Gowanus Expressway down Third Avenue, turning a once-vibrant commercial corridor into a forlorn industrial area covered by a steel and concrete highway. But just a few blocks north in Gowanus, some prewar charm remains in between the auto repair shops and fast food joints.
