Huh. I had missed this thread. I walked by there a few weeks ago and wondered what was happening. I naively thought they might be renovating for a new tenant. I'd never been to the Kevin Saint James and remember wondering what a "Party Room" would mean in a place like that.
Any new info on what's going up? I've never heard of Tribeach Holdings, but the rends look like ape vomit. Luckily a cheaply built, bland, 40-story condo tower (with or without lethal crane activity) will be "appropriate" for the Kaufman-dominated neighborhood and not "eccentric," making the Nouvel-less world safe for CB5.
