CurbedWire: 808 Columbus Watch, Gramercy Growth

New, 13 comments

UPPER WEST SIDE?The anchor of mixed-use megadevelopment Columbus Village, 808 Columbus Avenue, just keeps on chugging along. The building, which almost had its permits yanked but is considered by some to be Manhattan's most beneficial development (thanks to Whole Foods and a group of bank tenants) is not only suddenly very tall, but it's also getting some skin.

GRAMERCY?At 220 Third Avenue, at 19th Street, an unsightly tumor has stalled. Writes a tipster: What's happening on the Block Beautiful? The 'addition' of 4 floors to the existing 3 had been stopped by the D.O.B. since April 21st. Previously it had committed a host of violations. It is now morphing into an unsightly (and unhealthy?) corner to 19th Street. Has the builder run out of funds?" The stop work order in place notes "no standpipe or elevator in readiness" as well as "site conditions endangering workers." [CurbedWire Inbox]
