Exterior wall installation appears imminent at Friedland Properties' two building mixed-use development that spans a mid-block site between West 21st and 22nd Streets in the Ladies Mile Historic District of the Flatiron. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, the 14-story, 239-unit development will feature terracotta cladding on its gridded tower facades. Limestone and metal dominate the ground floor facades of the 8,211 square feet retail space. The design has been shaped by the rigors of the Landmarks Preservation Commission approval process, which unanimously approved the design on its second presentation. Completion is slated for 2016.
