The redevelopment of the so-called First Avenue Mud Pit chugs forward.
The 19-story building will bring 16 apartments to Midtown.
This battle now heads to the State Supreme Court, which will begin hearing the case this Thursday.
Sheldon Solow filed plans for this particular site, which one home to a Con Ed steam plant, back in August 2015, and tapped Meier to design the black glass-clad building the following summer.
The apartments are being done up with white oak flooring, light colored stone counters, and white lacquer kitchen cabinetry. About 69 apartments in the building come with balconies and will offer views of Midtown Manhattan.
Speculation around a new residential building on West 57th Street is abound after Sheldon Solow's purchase of an office and retail building for $128 million. He owns three other adjacent buildings on the street.
