It's roughly 15 stories. No rat anymore, though!

The setback should start soon, as well as cladding. Faux-brick, I presume?

Faux brick sounds about right... the curse of Kaufman... not sure about the setback, though.

Well, at least it will add some contrast to that very glassy street.

I don't think it looks THAT bad so far. Kaufman has far worse buildings. It looks like just another New York brick midrise.

This is topped out

Edit, and a recent picture shows what appears to be the cladding panels being installed.

The cladding has turned out looking very good. It's dark grey brickwork which complements the glass buildings on either side really well.

It's the least attractive of the three, but some black is nice there.

New cladding - worse than without the paint! But at least it's boring and not offensive.
