    oops that was the old render. And I was looking forward to seeing those triangular glass rooms. Here is the new one:

    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.

    The architect must have drawn inspiration from Kips Bay Towers.

    I was thinking the same thing. Very mid century retro.

    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.

    I walked by on 2013.09.28 - it doesn't look like any progress has been made in the last six months.

    The site is cursed.

    Is anything going on here, or is the site now the Museum of Construction Machines.



    I guess these people won't be happy about losing their indoor-outdoor space.

    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.
