    NY Times says the combo first floor and basement is large enough for big box retail.

    Like the inexplicable inclusion of a black tar roof on this despite the incentivizing of lightly colored roofs by the city? It's bland from the back, but all bricked up with all the patio railing up and such too. I have to imagine these are pretty pricey rentals. It's a pretty convenient location. Should be good Google money going into these places in 3...2...1...

    Looks good. Have they leased the retail space?

    So I have to admit, they have, since my previous post, applied pavers over the black tar coating. Forgive my early pessimism! From walking by the other day, there appears to be a section on the second floor of the northeast corner of the building with a finished drop ceiling and florescent lighting of unknown purpose. I don't know if it's the second floor of a bank, or the resident's gym or something else, but it appears more finished than other parts of the interior.

    For NYC this is what I would call a "nice looking enough" building: now, if it were built in - say - Boston - it would be considered 'exceptional'. Everything comes down to context: good - compared to What?

    For example: one of Boston' recent 'high end' real estate developments, here - http://www.archboston.org/community/...postcount=2545

    what's with the Boston-bashing? Baseball season hasn't even started yet.

    1.) Spring training warmup.
    2.) Low hanging fruit.
