    I'd hate to see Live Bait gone.

    I walked by here at lunch time and noticed that the buildings to the east of the Dunkin Donuts building are closed and look vacant. Hopefully, they'll be razed as they're the worst ones on the block.

    I coulbe be wrong but I think that grey building is where the Aperture gallery and retail store used to be. I work nearby and I will take a photo the next time I remember to bring my digicam to work.

    Here's a shot of those buildings. I was right, that is the old Aperture building.

    No building permits have been filed yet and there's nothing on the architects' website, but according to the Sota Glazing website it will be 47 stories. I guess it's also safe to presume that it will be clad with glass.

    Since there's no permits, I guess there's not much info yet.

    I was wondering how narrow this tower was going to be.....and is it going to abut the balconied building on the corner?

    Sota glazing does great work on glass (Centria, Orion) so this should be good.

    This one will be a very thin, sliver building.

    Yea, the footprint only encompasses the two buildings pictured above in GowanusGuy's post. More developers need to do this. Instead of demolishing a whole blockfront for a life-sucking, obese residential tower, buy/transfer air-rights from adjoining properties. This leaves the block mostly intact and provides a taller, slender, and more elegant tower.

    New building permits were filed, along with demolition permits for the 2 properties (20 & 22 east 23rd).

    The stats: 47 stories, 544 feet, 97 units, only 163,500 sq. ft, showing just how narrow this tower is going to be. I'm wondering how the party walls are going to look, but since a lot of air rights were bought, I'm thinking they will not be blank (hopefully).

    I checked the Cetra/Ruddy website but found nothing. It's going to be glass, though, and personally I find Cetra/Ruddy better than average.....so it should be a decent building. It might look like Ariel West, another narrow tall tower.

    At DOB the C of Os show that each lot is ~ 25' x 98', making the combined lot ~ 50' x 98' = ~ 4,900 Sq. Ft. plot.

    47 floors should make it the tallest building in the area, yes? (Other than Belvedere)

    It's across the street from Met life, which is 700 feet tall, a former world's tallest nearly a century ago. It will be prominent from Madison Sq, which is surrounded with stunning buildings. 2 modern buildings are also on the park, the Merchandise Mart building (also taller at 600+ feet), and that ugly apartment tower. Hopefully, this new one will add to the beauty of the park rather than detract like the other two.

    Madison sq. park is probably my favorite park in the city, beacuse of its intimacy, and three of NY's most beautiful buildings.....Met Life, Flatiron, and NY Life. The other pre-war buildings are also in pristine shape and many are being converted into condos.
