    What's with the one story portion in the back?

    It's so you'll always see the outline of the building they tore down.

    I like it. It beats having the parking lot that was there.

    Anything's better than a parking lot.

    Faint praise.

    It looks just like the Aston. Not bad, obviously better than the parking lot.

    36 stories, just like the other towers on 6th

    btw, it's already 3 stories or so above ground.

    Ablarc, people do chuckle at your witty retorts, they just don't post much. Thanks for the keen observations, not acerbic but more like a twist of lime to the conversation.

    That part of sixth ave. has become a showplace of undistinguished and boring towers. They fail to add any beauty whatsoever to the city or to my life as I walk down that avenue.
    At least with the parking lots there was a lively and colorful flea market scene on weekends. Now it is a soulless stretch. I do prefer NICE buildings over parking lots, but this is boring crap.

    The trees will be nice though.

    I don't believe the trees in the renderings. Chances are there will be few if any trees planted along this stsretch -- sadly the developers hate them (commercial tenants at street level don't want trees blocking their ugly signs) -- plus the 6th Ave. subway beneath makes it problematic (why? I don't know; 6th Ave. below 14th has lots of trees -- but maybe the tracks are deeper there than @ 23rd).

    Hey, even perfect people like myself are allowed a teeny, tiny oversight once in while.

    Really bland. I'd almost rather the parking lot.

    No. The housing units are more important.
