The article, Upper East Side Block of Genuine Interest  published April 3rd in The New York Times Real Estate section features one of Pennoyer’s most recent architectural accomplishments: No. 125 East 80th street between Park and Lexington (see photo above). The limestone building, built in 2013 is among a few that easily could be mistaken for early 19th century buildings. Pennoyer’s neo-traditional building features oval columns replicated from the neighboring building No. 123 and a half-circle recess above the main floor windows to mirror No. 130 located across the street.
