Construction Update: The New School, 65 Fifth Avenue

Construction appears to be nearing completion on The New School new building at 65 Fifth Avenue, which was rising above street level just this past December. The project doesn’t look quite as bright as the renderings had indicated, but the facade is nonetheless pleasant.

The building’s most interesting feature are the large windows present along the stairwells. The new campus is looking better than most new buildings in New York these days, but (unfortunately) that is not saying much.

Perhaps the project takes on quite a different look in the sunlight, although that will be hard to come by given winter’s rapid approach. It’s definitely possible that the luster is there when the building isn’t in the shade, but a truly stand-out building is always aesthetically pleasing, regardless of shade or shine. This is a feat that 65 Fifth Avenue does not accomplish.
