Taking in Alphabet Plaza on East Houston
Crews showed up shortly after Hurricane Sandy last fall to start work on Alphabet Plaza, a 12-story mixed-used apartment building for East Houston and Avenue D. According to the DOB, the building will be 108,953 total square feet, with 9,640 set aside for retail.
We've watched it grow these past 13 months... Here are some photos 13 months later... looks like the crews have made it to the top...

Per The Real Deal back in January 2012: "The building, which will include some affordable units as part of the 80/20 program, will have a doorman, rooftop terrace, gym and outdoor space."
Apartments were reported to be in the $2,500 to $3,600 range.
