"I look at this block, and I know it's over," the owner of Sin-é said when the rock club vacated its Attorney Street location in 2007. Luxury condos were already spreading through the area back then (the Times ran an obituary titled "Gentrification Blues: Requiem for a Cozy, Unassuming Rock Club") so it will come as no surprise to anyone that the former Sin-é building, vacant for the past eight years, will now be torn down and replaced by another condo building. Designed by architects Issac & Stern, who are also doing the nearby WD-50-replacing condo development, the new building will be six stories tall, with five full-floor condos and what appears to be three stores worth of retail space.
