Is the McSam hotel getting taller on Fourth Avenue?

Real-estate blogger Andrew Fine has been keeping a watchful eye on the McSam hotel seemingly stalled at Fourth Avenue and 13th Street... (It's the 11-story, 162-unit hotel brought to you and me by Sam Chang.) When I walked by the other day, I noticed something that I couldn't recall seeing before on the roof....





What is that, exactly? An observation tower to see if anyone from the DOB is coming for an inspection -- given the complaints from neighbors about the hotel being too tall? .... Despite the partial stop-work order, someone called the DOB four times in January saying that work continues....

It could be a water tower enclosure?

Most of that little tower has been up top there since June 2009.
