    Is it just me, or is this mess shaping up to be the biggest stain on the NYC skyline in 20 years? It's massive, hideous, and looks as awkward and bizarre as an embarrassed, naked extraterrestrial you've walked in on.

    I'm shocked this disaster is actually happening - especially after the quite-nice Vinoly design was (for reasons I still do not understand) killed by "the community." It's like a Gene Kaufman on steroids, eating northern Brooklyn.

    Walentas is going to drive this FAST. the thirst for product in Bburg is overwhelming. This raises an interesting question, though. Is there any activity at the 2nd/3rd phase of the Edge development? I'm amazed that has remained "stalled" even as the third and final NSP building is nearly complete.

    It'd be better if it included a transit improvement quotient. But the high payers will figure that out on their own

    I hope some of you guys took pictures during the demolition phase, because there were some truly epic shots to be seen

    What's with the windows? Did they hire an architectural firm that specializes in penitentiaries?

    In the day being employed at Domino's was one minor step above slavery. It was pretty horrific in there

    They appear to be building a temporary park within the construction site in a fenced in area with a path to the street, pretty strange.

    I guess they're trying to maintain community support with a facility to replace the BMX park they took down last year
