Window watch: 11 Avenue C



Because three months have passed since our last look at the 10-story 11 Avenue C (aka 350 E. Houston St.) ... now with glass windows up to the top floor...





BLDG Management is the developer behind the project, which will feature 46 residential units and ground-floor retail.

Foundation work began in December 2016 here on this triangular lot that housed the neighborhood's last gas station.

Previously on EV Grieve:
Workers officially reach the top at 11 Avenue C, where a 10-floor building sits on the neighborhood's last gas station

Groan, MORE glass! Doesn't anyone involved have a better design idea than floor-to-ceiling glass? It's a cliche at this point.

I can't imagine how noisy those glass-walled apartments are, nor the cost to heat/cool them.

But it’s so much cheaper to build them...developers don’t care what happens after the building goes up, they’ll just take their money and run. Noise? Hot? Cold? They don’t live in the buildings they put up- or even near them.

Future residents will get a real surprise when the ConEd dragon roars!

You'd seriously rather have less of a window to the world outside your apartment? Can't say I'd imagine wanting to have smaller windows but to each their own.

Ha of course they have big windows in those apartments as they are paying big bucks in rent for the view of East Houston Street and maybe they can see a sliver of the East River in the distance.
