The rendering for a new 21-story condo building at 19 Park Place was mind-blowing enough when the Ismael Leyva design came to our attention in late 2010. Here's what's even more mind-blowing: it's actually getting built. Tribeca Citizen recently noticed a construction update sign at the skinny lot and uncovered the intel that construction on the building will begin in the next few weeks. The sign gives the construction an end-date of November 2013. The Leyva design?which the developer confirms is still the one being used?has thoroughly normal interiors, at least according to the old renderings. But it's not the interiors the neighborhood's likely to worry about.
