The stripping away of the white brick slapped onto the steel frame of the old Tiffany & Co. building on Union Square West was done mostly behind a funeral shroud. But now that the luxury condo conversion has progressed to the point where the fancy model is making potential buyers swoon, the curious public has been granted a long-awaited look at all that heavy metal. The steel arches will be wrapped in glass, like a museum artifact with its own valet parking, and some glass is now visible. HOT, but we're still not sold on that rooftop addition.
