Nice, but I will not be content until that heinous tenement just south of this is razed.

Reminds me of the one on the NW corner of 23rd and 6th.

I’m such a fan of this project.

I agree. That’s heinous too.

Does anyone know if this disgusting eyesore is a rental or co-op? It utterly detracts from Union Square. A Stern condo on this site would be stunning.

It’s rental so I’m sure they’ve had offers. Built in 1963.

I thought it was. It must have a lot of rent-controlled tenants who are impossible to evict.

A 20 story limestone tower by Stern in that otherwise beautful location would be an absolute blockbuster.

The only other missing tooth in Union Square is that horrible McD’s on the northwest side of the Square.

I am pretty sure it will happen eventually,
This is too good of a location for nothing to be built there.
Don’t expect it to be in the near future though.

I know I’m a broken record, but I hate that heinous rental next door which looks like a housing project.

This is so awesome. Looking forward to this one.

There’s a couple of ugly buildings on the other side of the park as well. I see all of them as an opportunity to one day elevate the union square.

New York needs more of these restoration projects, instead of developers deciding to tear down a beautiful old building to replace it with a soulless glass box.

I know that I’m a broken record, but the heinous PoS right next to this must come down. It’s an eyesore that detracts from a stunning building. I assume that it’s a rent-regulated building, and for that reason, is next to impossible to raze.

Such an elegant building looks out of place next to the garbage beside it.
