Don't look now, but it appears that a another finger-ish building is going to be flipping a touch of bird in Williamsburg. A neighborhood correspondent who's been keeping tabs on the progress of a proposed 14-story building at Driggs and Grand Street in the Burg passes on word that it's been approved. Our correspondent writes:
It looks like plans have been approved for the Karl Fischer monster (219-224 Grand, not the empty lot). Approved yesterday for 14 stories! City Planning was supposed to review the area and possibly landmark Fillmore place but I guess someone's palm got greased. Residents received letters just last week saying the area was under review.That's the rendering of "The Grand Tower" from the website of Karl Fischer Architects.
