    Thanks for the link. I don't really share Ron's aesthetic, but I do respect it.

    Not even close see the upstairs tilted window, shower etc. I see buildings from the 1700's every in mint condition, so 80 years should be an issue.





    Haven't they broke ground on it?

    It's almost entirely framed. I think it's actually a pretty tasteful tower above the skyline. It has a very slender volume. The design of the facades at street level look pretty uninspired though. Either way, it's still better than anything over by the High Line and Chelsea, which is the other area featuring a prominent selection of ugly new condo towers.
