Renovation on a retail building at Sixth Avenue and 34th Street has revealed an elegant limestone building long hidden by blue mirrored glass.

Since 1985, the façade of the building at the southwest corner of Sixth Avenue and 34th Street—originally the Herald Square home of Saks—has been hidden, according to Ephemeral NY.

The store had long served as Saks 34th Street, but in the 1960s it became a Korvette’s and was most recently occupied by Daffy’s.

The store is now set to become a massive H&M.[Ephemeral NY] Christopher Cameron
