Here's Jupiter 21, now in orbit around Second Avenue and East First Street



This past week the remaining scaffolding and construction netting came down at Jupiter 21, the apartment-retail complex at Second Avenue and East First Street... so now you have a really good idea of what it looks like, save the street-level plywood...





Per the J21 press materials:

The building will ultimately have 65 units: 13 affordable condos, 52 market-rate studio through two-bedroom rentals, and two commercial condos. Nine of those affordable condos "have been reserved for the tenants of the original buildings displaced by the new construction" ...



And a look behind the plywood... where there will be a fucking bank ... and maybe a Mars Bar 2.0?



Anyway, here is the rendering. How did they do?

I miss Mars Bar. And the 20th century. What an ugly piece of shit they built! I hope they choke on all the money they make.

The apologists will declare, "Well, it could have been worse.....and it's a nice blue tinge...."

Little boxes.....BIG boxes......what's the diff?

And a Mars Bar by any other name.....would NEVER be allowed herewithin.

Why are you posting photos of Montreal?

Ha. I happen to be visiting Montreal, and there are so many gorgeous old buildings here. They aren't as quick to tear down the old to make way for the shiny and new. Not to say it never happens but there is still of the past alive and well and cherished here. If only NYC was the same these days.
