Much of the limestone and glass curtain wall has been installed at BKSK Architects' One Vandam on the boundary of the SoHo and Hudson Square neighborhoods. The 14-story, 25-unit residential condo tower features an exterior envelop comprised of three elements: metal, glass, and limestone panels from a quarry in Alabama. A randomized pattern is created by three unit types: glass, limestone panels on the exterior, and a back-pan limestone panel that sits behind the glass. Among the panels still to be installed are those at the top floor penthouse, including the triple height stair of Penthouse A, visible in the center of the west facade's top three floors. Construction should be complete sometime later this year.
