Witness the Second Avenue Subway effect in action. This here is the fresh-from-our-inbox rendering of the 21-story luxury condo development slated for the northeast corner of East 85th Street and Second Avenue (official addresses: 305 East 85th Street, aka 1644-46 Second Avenue). Three five-story walkups will be demolished to make way for this one, reports Steve Cuozzo, who notes this magical bit of influence peddling: "Crucial to the deal was assurance from the MTA that the planned Second Avenue subway would not interfere with the site."
