Hunters Point South: Buildings A+B

Since the first signs of curtain wall installation in early April, much more of the building envelope has gone up on Building A and installation has begun on Building B. Curtain wall has reached the sixth floor on Building A, with installation of the dark vertical fins visible on the fifth floor of the northeast corner.

In contrast to the vertical articulation and orange accent coloring on Building A, Building B has a blue and green color scheme with rectangular frames interspersed throughout to add dimension to the facade.  Currently, the curtain wall installation has reached to the fifth floor on the south and east facades of Building B.
