    That's the first thing that occurred to me. It shouldn't be stand-alone.

    It was a parking lot before. I don't remember for how long, or what was there before.

    Now that it's a DEP site, I'm not sure what they can do.

    I like that. It certainly respects the neighborhood aesthetic.

    Agreed. A very nice residential building and perfect infill for the neighborhood. I'm so glad it's replacing one of the area's many (but disappearing) parking lots.

    Anyone know the address or name of this building? It's across the street from Astor Place.

    Default Address

    The Address for the now defunct Barnes & Nobles was 4 Astor Place, which *should* be the same address for the building

    Maki's Model Storms Astor Place: The 'Bucks Stops Here?

    CURBED

    The rendering of Japanese starchitect Fumihiko Maki's design of a new "jewel
    box" office building at 51 Astor Place is interesting, sure, but it's also a
    little ... flat. Just shapes on a page, without much detail indicating how it
    can actually be a real physical structure. But via World Architecture News,
    this model clues us in a little better on Maki's 13-story creation, with its
    black granite and "ribbing material" and Cooper Union-replacing charm. It also
    looks like the Starbucks on the property—one of two in Astor Place, of
    course—may be razed. Will it reopen in the building's lobby, with hundreds of
    new regulars lurking directly above? Only the java gods, and developer
    Edward Minskoff, know for sure.

    No info on the Astor building at the Maki website.

    What is not at all clear is how this one will present itself -- the west facade -- to Astor Square.

    It appears to be a slab of sorts on that side.

    I agree. It has REALLY beautiful old buildings and some of the best new ones rising in the city.
