Steel structure for new Houston Street office building continues ascent

Since our last look on Nov. 2, there's noticeable progress on the 9-story office building rising at 141 E. Houston St. between Eldridge and Forsyth... the steel structure is up to what appears to be the fourth and fifth floors...

Some day it will be like this:
From acclaimed architect Roger Ferris, the only new development of its type on the Lower East Side, 141 East Houston is a new frame for viewing the neighborhood. Column-free and unbounded by walls, it reinterprets the area through a bold geometric perimeter of cladding and glass. State-of- the-art workspaces and private terraces reframe expectations, while a well-connected location recasts perspectives. 
With its glass frame and dynamic courtyard running the length of its eastern side, doubling as a second facade, 141 East Houston challenges the distinction between indoors and out.

East End Capital and K Property Group bought the property for $31.5 million in the spring of 2017. The links below provide more background on what has transpired on the site of the former Sunshine Cinema (RIP January 2018).

Still can't get my mind around who they think is clamoring for office space at this location, especially when Essex Crossing is still going begging for tenants.

@Sarah: Remember the mantra "If you build it, they will come…"? Eventually, they'll make this an "exclusive" location—you'll see.
