The demolition of the (relatively) tiny townhouse at 949 Park Avenue happened without any fanfare. But now there's something going up on the site (which was snapped up by a developer for $6 million in 2007), so it's time to get curious. Blog Upper East Sigh uncovered the above rendering from the modernist folks at C3D Architecture. What's happening in this picture? A 16-story, 12-unit building, 13 floors of which appear to have gone up already. Upper East Sigh advises the developer to leave the black construction cloth on for better results. A frightening sliver of a building it may be, but don't judge a building by its facade. Judge by its Park Avenue address instead.
