Dumont Update – Eye Street Facing

In August we discussed the “trenches” along the perimeter of the Dumont. The terraces and steps have now been installed.

Came out better than I envisioned except for the color of the stairs (maybe they still plan to paint them). I still can’t imagine the quasi-basement units along the trench being very desirable until nearly all other 1BR inventory is worked off.

    But will this building go apartment? I’ve heard (albeit from dubious sources) that the Dumont is “dead.”

    The DuMont is comprised of an East and West building. I’ve heard rumor that one building is going apartments but I haven’t been following it too closely. District Chatter has the most first hand coverage of the DuMont.

    The stairs are not what I expected.

    I expected something black. I like the wavy rails, but not the stairs.

    I think the stairs would look better with a darker color such as black or a charcoal grey. Presently, with that aluminum foil-esque color, the stairs look like they ought to be connected to bleachers not residences. They do not mesh with the surroundings and detract from the building. Maybe there is still chance they paint them…

    Would it not have made sense to paint the stairs pre-installation if they were definitely going to paint them?
