These New York City Buildings Are A Nod To Old And New

Real Estate

In an era that has seen glass towers springing up endlessly in New York City, it may seem as if modern architecture is the default of the 2010s. But there are some buildings that take a more blended approach to architecture, with designs that combine various aesthetics.

Here are several New York City buildings that merge architectural styles.

PLG, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn

The facade of this new 26-story, 467-unit luxury rental building near Prospect Park marries the look of glass tower with precast concrete that takes a chevron pattern as an homage to the surrounding architecture. Hill West Architects created an undulating curtain wall as a modern interpretation of brownstone bay windows.

Oskar, Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan

This 14-story luxury rental also blends modern new glass with old-school masonry. The rounded glass building is wrapped in white terracotta.

GALERIE, Long Island City, Queens

For this 11-story, 182-unit condo, ODA New York wove together three architectural styles in its facade. Buyers can decide between a curtain wall, window wall or punched windows.

11 Hancock, Harlem, Manhattan

This 12-story, 71-unit condo was designed with a cantilevered structure and combines glass, steel, brick and burnished copper.

40 Bleecker, NoHo, Manhattan

This new 12-story condo sits in a landmarked neighborhood. Rawlings Architects created a brick and metal façade with punched glass window openings in a nod to surrounding pre-war buildings.
