East Second Street rooftop addition going for that shipping container look?
A few of us have been keeping an eye on the progress at 80 E. Second St., where there are city-approved plans to add two floors to the existing 4-floor building just west of First Avenue.
Here's a shot from last December, showing a few measly beams…

Hmm, OK. Not sure what to make of this addition so far. The permits say "To enlarge the existing 4 story to a 6 story, 5 family dwelling." Is the two-floor addition then just for one residence? No clue as to what's shaping up here on the website of the architect, Damir Dan Sehic of C3D Architects PLLC.
In any event, the bar has been set pretty high on East Second Street for rooftop homes. Directly across the street is the penthouse featuring the deck, lawn and 4-foot-deep resistance pool.
