Left Bank, The

Constructed as the Pennsylvania Railroad Freight Building in 1929, in a restrained Art Deco style, the first floor is sheathed in limestone with the upper stories clad in buff colored brick with limestone details. Rising six stories above a track level, the building was originally designed as a combination freight station, warehouse and showroom, and is characterized by immense massing, typical of industrial architecture. The structure was renovated and converted into condominium apartments, with a massive open courtyard carved from the interior, by the firm of Bower Lewis Thrower Architects in 2001.
