Limestone, a facade material most associated with tony Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue uptown buildings has emerged in……of all places….West Chelsea, Downtown New York! Very few buildings Downtown boast this beautiful material: 15 Central Park West clad its entire facade in Limestone to emulate the cachet of 740 Park Avenue. Now we see this material being used on the Sherwood Equities building located at 500 West 21st Street…..soon to be followed by the magnificent Steven Harris-designed condominium across the street from Gagosian Gallery at 560 West 24th Street. West Chelsea is becoming awfully chic!
