    This one is up to about the 15th Floor -- and beginning to show what will be a HUGE expanse of blank brick running up one side ...

    From yesterday by JACKinNYC over @ ssp.

    Appears to have a large expanse of blank wall on the eastern side.

    This was never shown in any renderings because we always saw the west facing side (which also featured a blank wall, although it is smaller).

    This sucker is up to about 25 Floors ...

    The blank east wall is hardly visible from Madison Avenue yet, except as it rises over a little 4-story brick structure at mid-block:

    With very limited exceptions, the buildings in this area are unbelieveably beautiful.

    why would a builder do such a large blank wall.....is the blank wall related to lot lines or is the builder being cheap...

    Glass and Bricks have started to go up on the Sky House where they are up to about floor 25 ...

    The bricks are pretty good (they are pre-constructed panels) and seemingly an attempt to correspond to the old bricks on the church -- the brick surface is mottled & multi-toned with some sheen, but the glass is looking pretty wavy ...



    But that HUGE expanse of brick on the northern side of the west facade looks like it will be overwhelming ...

    Churches overall have contibuted a lot to new developments in the city (this, the Friar's tower, etc.).

    Is God pro-development and is he telling us something?

    The thing I like best about this building, no exposed floorplates. When was the last time we saw that in a brick residential construction in NYC?

    Previously someone posted info regarding the amount of heat / cold that escapes / enters a building due to exposed floor plates ...

    Could it be that we're seeing fewer of them due to "green" building policies?
