Too wide and I don't like that streetwall-breaking fence on the ground floor. But overall not bad.

Overall the new design is a vast improvement over that dated Leyva glass contraption.

I like that fenestration, the deep in-set windows serve to insure that even a patchwork quilt of window blinds (as shown) will not detract from the "foxy & Boxy" look of the building. BTW, that buzbuzhome site is an interesting BLOG concept; no personal affiliation, it just looks like a good IT concept.
Excerpt from the blog- At BuzzBuzzHome we are improving the way people research and purchase new construction homes.
We are focused on cataloguing all new residential developments in North America, connecting purchasers directly with sellers, and providing social tools that enable collaboration amongst purchasers and industry experts.

That portable construction office wasn't there a month or so ago. Pile driving here had come to a halt months ago. So it does look like things are back in action.
The DOB Job Overview shows that a Permit was issued for excavation on 12/30/2013:

Dark Brutalism, but better than glassy confection.
I suppose the greenery up top softens it a bit, but not from ground level.
