200 East 79th Street remains a bit of a mystery. So far, we know that Cetra Ruddy is the architect, that Stribling will be handling marketing, and that the building should launch sales sometime this fall. What we don't have are renderings or a website to see what this building will eventually look like. Cetra Ruddy has nothing online for the project, and Stribling has but an unpublicized sign-up website, 200e79.com, that touts three, four, and five bedroom apartments in a "contemporary classic" style. So, we are left to empirical evidence, and things have improved dramatically of late from that perspective. In recent weeks, the precast stone facade has appeared, as has a model on the corner of the building. Contemporary? Classic? I like both, and from the looks of the facade, I have little reason to doubt that 200 East 79th will follow through. Then again, my desire for more information at this point remains to be satiated.
