Here is a shot from Solow’s gigantic site across the street from 685.

There are a few excavators and rebar lying around but they may just be stored there for now (maybe this equipment was from 685? )

I feel like we would have heard something if anything real was going on.

Nice photo, JC. Where in Queens were you? I assume somehwhere around Greenpoint.

That one was taken on the LIC waterfront. Right at the end of 51st st iirc.

Nice job!

Interesting review of the tower. I like it. I love dark glass and am so thankful we have at least one developer who feels similarly. It adds diversity to the skyline of ever-increasing “regular” glass.

Also, interestingly enough, the article says Solow is planning on building some more residential towers and an office tower on that green parcel!
