Look at the former Bowlmor Lanes now

A walk by University Place and 12th Street... developer Billy Macklowe's 23-floor retail-residential complex has really charged upwards since the last look in June.

Workers appear to be up to the 19th (18th? 20th?) floor... in what will one day look like...

The average price for the 36 condos (there are 52 in total) in contract is $6.1 million, per Streeteasy.

There are ongoing concerns about overdevelopment along the Broadway/University Place/Union Square corridor.

Bowlmor Lanes closed in July 2014 after 76 years in business.

Previously on EV Grieve:
Building that houses Bowlmor Lanes will convert to condos, like everywhere else around here

76-year-old Bowlmor Lanes closes for good today

Bowlmor says goodbye

Oh, that's so much better. The city and people will truly benefit from that isolated green space too.

Neighborhood destroyed. Really bad design. This is why be have cities like Akron. Set-backs don't really work in the city. The Lever House is the only exception.

Back in the day, you'd go to Danceteria, the an all-night cheap diner at Kiev, then bowl a few rounds. All affordable. Not anymore.

This: a set-back piece of corporate crap. And De Blasio continues to cash in, with no one running for mayor against him since he bought out the opposition.

Oh, and if re-elected, it will only get worse.

Akron? Downtown Akron is more interesting looking than the East Village/Union Square area.
