(Apologies on the double post, but we'll leave it up because you're already commenting)

This just in. A new residence is coming to town. Shigeru Ban's Metal Shutter Houses are going up in west Chelsea. First published in the New York Times yesterday, the 11-story building will feature an operable front facade of perforated metal shutters.

The design will allow the front of each apartment to open up completely to the elements. We're excited about this new addition to the starchitect-heavy developments transforming the Meatpacking District. See more at City Realty and Curbed.
