As usual, you cried out for renderings yesterday amid the scuttlebutt over 808 Columbus Avenue, and we felt your pain. But alas, all we have are scraps today, in the form of an "ad placed in a real estate journal by the agent responsible [Winick Realty] for leasing the new retail space," which you see above. Gone is the shuttered C-Town supermarket, just south of 100th Street. In its place? Boilerplate signage: BANK! FASHION! HOME IMPROVEMENTS! SHOES! We can't even be sure if these are real plans, or just stunningly creative placeholders. Ditto for the bottom half of the 29-story residential building you see hiding out in the back there. Whatever it'll look like eventually, Crain's says it's slated for '08 completion. Get it? Crazy eights!
