So often, the best laid plans of architects and renderers don't really work the way they were envisioned, which is why it's mildly surprising to see that the Spring Street Salt Shed in Hudson Square, conceived to look like a giant salt crystal, actually seems to look like that. The shed is currently under construction, but Tribeca Citizen managed to get a shot (above) through the scaffolding, and whether or not the exposed part is how it will actually look when finished, so far it looks pretty cool. The adjacent Garbage Garage (for the Department of Sanitation's trucks) was conceived to look like a building, has been built, and does look like a building, so that worked out, too.
