Bowling for condos

While on the topic of possible zoning protections for the neighborhoods surrounding the proposed Union Square Tech Hub ... here's a look at the 22-floor retail-residential complex developed by William Macklowe Company and Goldman Sachs on University Place between 12th Street and 13th Street ... formerly known for 76 years as Bowlmor Lanes.

Earlier last month, Curbed reported that 75 percent of the building’s 52 apartments here at 21 E. 12th St. (21E12!) have sold, including the $17.5 million penthouse.

The building is expected to be complete this summer. Most recently, workers installed the façade — featuring precast panels of light colored cast stone and punched casement windows.

Bowlmor Lanes closed in July 2014.

It's like a mini-432 Park.

Bland, bland, bland! Zero imagination at work, and utterly non-contextual, therefore, IMO, hostile to the neighborhood.

Hostile to the neighborhood? This IS the neighborhood! If they are selling 75 percent of the units before the building opens others will keep on building these units at comparable prices. Tech is joining finance and bringing even more rich people to Manhattan.
