South Village Superstructure

“Concrete superstructure of the second building at the new multi-million dollar 12-acre Washington Square Villager rising week by week. Scheduled for occupancy this Fall, the apartment will approximate the 17-story first building behind it. A third and final building will complete the project 300 feet south. The buildings are the longest (3 blocks) residential apartments in the country. Paul Tishman is builder in charge of design and construction.”
(Reprinted from the March 12, 1959, issue of The Villager.)
