Why does the thread title still say 'Myrtle Street'? The building address is 150 Myrtle Avenue.

... What the hell...?

They should have kept the one they killed and killed this one instead. This is as bad as Aqua in Chicago... all scabrous and deformed... a piano player's nightmare come to life.

God, shoot me now, but this is just fugly.

nah its not that bad. It actually came out pretty close to the rendering. What were they going to build instead of this, btw? Pics, info? The 111 Lawrence tower, U/C right now and slated to be Brooklyn's tallest is far, far, far worse (and right in the middle of Bk's skyline to boot.

Funny that you say that because it's becoming usual for New-York : therefore, it is not futuristic any more !! Should we rather describe it as contemporary ?
