It's been almost a year since we declared the futuristic condo project at 166 Perry Street a Development du Jour, and despite a few bumps the gang at Asymptote are getting things smoothed out. Some of the much anticipated shape-shifting glass has started going up on the north facade along Perry Street, just east of the stratospheric Richard Meier towers of white. Since it seems like waterfalls, wet or otherwise, are all the rage this year, we're betting this 24-unit super-glam "fractured crystal ... cascade" is just what those Jetson kids are hoping for.
