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.
Another cheaply made, way over priced smirch on the neighborhood. Not to mention constructed by a developer that endangered the lives of the tenants living next door at 249 E. 2nd Street when their building was seriously damaged during construction to the point where the building was being considered to condemn. Who wants to move into a building constructed on a toxic lot (former gas station), over an intersection that produces endless noise and serious traffic accidents on a regular basis? It is only a matter of time before the building itself is run into by a hapless driver dodging left-turners off Houston. Let's watch how long it takes to get a retail business to sign for the bottom floor and how long any business will last there.
