NEW YORK | The Fitzroy | 10 fl | T/O

It was pointed out that this building curiously didn't have its own thread.
Now let's get some updates on this beauty.

One of the best buildings I've seen designed in my generation, ridiculously beautiful, elegant, and respectfully retro. I love it.

I love this one. Same time it has elegant classical look, but it's not kitschy at all.

I'm really interested in that green facade. I wonder how it will turn out.

I agree. A masterpiece. However the contrast with its neighbours is staggering. I hope they will be redeveloped soon.

The one of the left is a masterpiece. The one on the right is just bland.

Amazing. Art Deco is back, just in time for the new 'Roaring Twenties'!

Well this one looks good, at least on the renders, it reminds me of Eastern Columbia Building in LA. If they use proper materials, it would probably look good.

This thing is SEXY!!! Rare for a building to be a turn on.

Although there is an irony here. I'd rather live in the building across the way than in it, so I can always see it out of my window, rather than be stuck with an ugly view from inside a beautiful place.

This is so reliable to New York's real Art Deco iconic structures.
