You were talking about those 'old commercial buildings' on the Garment district. They are still there. I agree that some of the towers north of 23rd on 6th Ave are nothing to rave about. Although this tower looks more promising on that stretch. Those other buildings were built in some forgettable buildings of one, two or tree stories or on parking lots/unused surface lots. Which were actually then used for flea or flower markets. That area was know more as the garden or flower district. But again they should have actually built much nicer design towers than what is there. I never heard that area called as the Garment district. Don't believe me, read...

The original post said something about receiving a permit for underground parking. Does the NYC require developers to provide parking? Just wondering

The reflection of the Empire state building is great in the last shot. The facade is overly organized at the base though. Maybe the tower part would be more interesting if it contrasts in a more random pattern! Anyway, they definitely have to paint or seal the concrete, looking kinda industrial right now...
