I’m very pleased that this PoS will be razed and that the beautiful old building to the south will remain! I was disappointed when the beautiful residential tower rising next door did not include this because I feared that we’d either be stuck with this or that some shmuck would demolish this and the gem next to it. Fortunately, it all worked out!


#2

Good. No loss here.


#3

I agree. The one getting torn down was an eyesore. But I hope the nice white one withstands future development. From today


#4

I concur


#5

Nothing going on at this site, but does anyone know what is going on at the corner of 6th and w 29th st? They started taking down more buildings along 29th st now.


#6

I applaud the plumbers! Let’s declare war on s.h.i.t.!

Fortunately, the beautiful building between these turds appears safe.


#7

Yesterday. Scaffolding going up for demo.


#8

Beautiful!

any time a development of this class does not have exposed a/c vents is a winner in my book


#12

Demo almost down to street level.

This article has a link to a youtube video which is pretty interesting:

AC NoMad - Modular Grows Up

The 168 modular units (assembled in Poland) will be delivered in January. The retail base and elevator section are the only construction necessary in NY. Should go up fast.

The beginning of that video is also interesting - they created some strange hack to meet zoning requirements for their building near wtc.
