Facade work complete at future home of Book Culture at 26-09 Jackson Avenue

Earlier in October, we saw that pipe scaffolding was up at the future home of Book Culture, which will be coming later this year to 26-09 Jackson Avenue.1 When we stopped by earlier in the week, we saw that facade work has finished, revealing a renovated brick exterior, with crews taking down pipe scaffolding. There’s also new signage on site, as seen in the photo below.

The book retailer has three locations in Manhattan’s Upper West Side, and will open in a building that is owned by Rockrose. The New York Times was the first to report the leasing of the space.2

Here’s more about Book Culture from its website:3

At Book Culture, we know that reading enriches lives, families, and communities. To us, books and publishing are cultural treasures to be kept in trust by those that recognize the value that they hold. To ensure a vibrant and diverse future for books and publishing, a multitude of independent bookstores – each selecting titles based on their own tastes and interests, and those of their local customers, is essential.
