It's been nearly a year since we hear anything about the rental tower going up at 309 Fifth Avenue, and blogging broker Andrew Fine decided it was time for an update. So what's up? Fine snapped a few photos showing that the 452' tall building has topped out and is getting its glassy facade. As the photos show, the rendering vs. reality is a pretty close match. The 34-story building will have about 100 market rate rentals, and plans filed with the DOB show quite a few duplexes. Amenities include a gym, bike storage, a residents lounge, and a shared rooftop deck, and the ground floor will have 10,400 square feet of retail. Given the building's progress, Fine expects it will meet the proposed September 2013 opening.
