In case my last article on Carnegie Hill Place didn't convince you that luxury was lurching up Lex, here is another example: 1595 Lexington on 101st Street. I have confirmed with the owner of the building that this will be a luxury rental. One thing is for sure, this is not your average cookie-cutter. The 54,000 square foot building that will house both retail and 40 apartments is designed by Stephen B. Jacobs and Andi Pepper Interior who also designed Hotel Gansevoort, 325 Fifth Avenue and Hotel Giraffe as well as several others.
Pretty starchitect-ish for Harlem.
And if that's not enough for you- El Paso Taqueria, my favorite Mexican eatery in the city is just 2 blocks away!
