    Thanks, I didn't even know it was dark outside.

    Default Very nice

    I just took a perusal of this area today too. The Toren is really very striking in real life. It has a sexiness that isn't fully conveyed, even as nice as it looks in renderings and photos.

    Well it could be worse just look at Forte Condo specifically the fašade the that faces Flatbush nothing but a blank concrete wall talk about ugly. Now I do realize the builder probably anticipated the construction of another tower in close proximity but that's no excuse.

    Gorgeous. That first pic is simply gorgeous.

    Unfortunately, look at all the ugly stepsisters in the background (in the second pic). It will soon be surrounded by stepsisters from all sides.

    ^ Possible to make one post about Brooklyn without sounding like an annoying booster?

    ^ Now that must be the first 'dislike' I have ever seen from BrooklynLove about something going up in Brooklyn. Antinimby is actually changing his way of thinking?


    Anyway, I really like this building. While some of the other new buildings are fair or just bad, this is the only real good thing that Downtown Brooklyn seem to have gotten in this boom.

    I'd rather spend my time commenting on buildings I do like than those I don't. I'm not all that in love with Forte either but am in love with the direction of progress it brings to the ATL-Fbush-BAM nexus.

    Toren looked mighty fine tonight after my feasting at Juniors.

    I was in the area too tonight but the fog was much too thick. Avalon is starting to become visible from the BQE.

    There is a rendering poster of Avalon FG up in the window to the side of the Toren showroom. Looks like more glass than the redering floating around online.

    There are really only two types of cladding when it comes to Avalons.

    It's either this all-glass type:





    Or this with a little more brick:





    Either way, it will be cheap-ass ugly.

    The more glass, the better.
