The photo above is the view from above of the Toll Brothers Northside Piers site on Kent Avenue in Williamsburg posted by blogger INSIJS, who's back from a hiatus. Two floors of the first of Northside Piers buildings are now out of the ground. The site will include three towers, the first being a 29-story luxury glass number. No such progress, though, on The Edge, Northside Piers' neighbor to the north. INSIJS discovered a Stop Work Order from last week hidden on N. 5th Street. (Demolition and fence permits expired.) Pile driving for The Edge started this summer, and then came to a halt. Technical difficulties, financing problems, back to the drawing board for reconceptualization or fear of bubble burstage?
