Checking in on the BP-replacing condoplex of 2nd Avenue

Friday's post on how quickly the condoplex is going up at 32 E. Seventh St. (aka 119-121 Second Ave.) prompted a few readers to ask about 24 Second Ave. (aka 32 E. First St.) six blocks to the south.

There's slowish but steady progress on this 10-story condoplex on the site of the former BP station, the second-to-last-one in the neighborhood. We noted that the building reached the third floor in April 2017.

The top photo is from Saturday.

As previously reported, the building will house 30 condos, with homes ranging from $1.125 million to $10.5 million along with ground-floor retail. The building's website — "meticulous meets magnificence" — lists that seven units remain for purchase.

If that pile of crap is "magnificence", I really need to re-think my heretofore-unquestioned command of the English language.

I wonder if contemporary architects ever get bored with their own creations? Glass and steel blah. Glass and steel blah. Glass and steel blah.
