CurbedWire: Great Jones Mystery, Holy Demolition

NOHOOne of the several tipsters who alerted us to the above structure writes, "When we walked by on Saturday, a multi-story steel (or maybe aluminum) structure was rising rapidly on the empty lot on the south east corner of Lafayette and Great Jones. It didn't look strong enough to support anything heavier than laundry---lots of laundry." Anybody got the deets on this wacky project? [CurbedWire Inbox]

EAST WILLIAMSBURGSomething is going on at a Catholic Charities Housing building at 157 Graham Ave (@ Montrose Ave). A tipster reports, "Recently, they put up a second floor scaffold. I thought they were going to renovate apartments, but the entire thing is being gutted. From the street, you can look up through a third floor window and see straight through the non-existent roof. There still are residents living in the part of the building on Graham close to Johnson, but the Montrose Ave side is empty. It is a large building for that area. Total demolition?" [CurbedWire Inbox]
