    Latest rendering actually appears to have gone glassy:

    Maybe. I love the shape of this building - it's going to look great when viewed from the North on Flatbush.

    I can see this building under construction from my office at the ESB.

    This building has just had its first setback. That puts it at about 25 floors so far, give or take.

    Taken today. Up to about 25 floors. Avalon is also visible in the upper right corner.

    By the way, note the cantilever in the lower left in my last picture. I haven't seen that mentioned anywhere else, but this building cantilevers over an existing building starting on the 11th floor.

    Most likely. From that angle, there aren't that many other possibilities.

    Yep, it's from the Forte roof deck.

    It blocks a small portion of the view, but mostly the view of the Flatbush corridor, which was already blocked by other high-rises.

    Or adds to the view depending on one's perspective I guess.

    That will depend on how nicely this building ends up turning out. So far I'm extremely cautiously optimistic. It's a bit surprising they haven't started cladding it yet...
