    Too bad they can't sell their units.

    the whole row of windows are installed, and the red is just generic metal panels. i can't tell if it will be too bad or not.... all i know is its definitely not anything special.
    maybe it'll turn out brighter red and be somewhat similar to the red apple in rotterdam thats me being optimistic

    Thought some people might wanna see these







    I was questioned by a security guard while taking those and told that I couldn't take pictures further north on Lawrence (Metrotech). Just a heads up.
    (I'm thinking they just might ban cameras in this city one day...)

    Wavy glass and AC vents. Ugh.

    This and the Avalon Fort Greene are the very definition of the word, MONSTROSITY.

    Horrific building aside - I'll be happy when this tops out in a few months and the Williamsburg Savings Bank will no longer be tallest in Brooklyn. Even if it's only topped by 3 feet, it's important that it finally happens.

    Whoever paid up for views in the higher floors of BellTel facing West is getting this lump right in their face.

    It is climbing fast, but the facade is going to be hideous if this contiues to the roof; cheap looking and out-and-out ugly.

    Another row of windows has gone in. This one is not looking promising.

    Yeah, I saw that on a walk through Downtown Brooklyn on Saturday. This and Avalon are rising very quickly, but I fear we are going to get two very ugly bumps in the skyline. Not "slightly unattractive" - we're talking "butt ugly."

    Yeah, Avalon you expect ugly. Clarett has put up some average buildings, but this will likely be their worst. It'll be interesting to see how prominent 111 Lawrence is from various viewpoints - seeing as it's destined to be Brooklyn's new tallest.

    111L is not looking good, however I think that you're over-reacting re AVBFG.

    I think BrooklynLove might own stocks in Avalon Bay.

    In terms of height, 111 Lawrence tops One Hanson Place. AVB does not.
