Thin 949 Park Avenue Plans to Lurk Over Upper East Side

New, 20 comments

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.
