Bobby Williams shares this photo of One Manhattan Square barely noticeable on the horizon down by the Manhattan Bridge... as Gothamist recently described the 72-floor residential building: "a gleaming cheese grater of truly terrifying proportions."

You've certainly seen the towering presence of the 72-floor One Manhattan Square off in the distance from Avenue B... Extell's tower is down at 250 South St. near the Manhattan Bridge.
EVG reader Paul Gale shared this photo yesterday ... part of an Extell mailer that unwittingly shows just how imposing this building is on the LES skyline...
Apparently this is what the intersection of "grit and glamour" looks like — somewhere right at Houston and B.

An EVG reader notes that the glass has apparently reached the top of One Manhattan Square, Extell's 80-story, 847-foot-tall tower down at 252 South St. (basically the former Pathmark) ... looks that way from down here...
... but not here...
[Photo from Sept. 26]
The building will have 815 residential units starting above $1 million as well as 100,000 square feet of outdoor and indoor amenities, including an indoor basketball court, a bowling alley, a tea pavilion and a private theater. (Movies, not plays!)

[One Manhattan Square]
An analysis by The Real Deal published yesterday shows that the Lower East Side and the East Village have the second-highest number of condos on the market or in the pipeline when compared to all Manhattan neighborhoods.
In total, that makes 1,004 new units.
The is a big HOWEVER however.
It should be noted ... that its inventory count is significantly bolstered by one massive project: Extell Development’s 815-unit One Manhattan Square — the biggest condo development in Manhattan by unit count.
But some argued that sweeping the glassy condo project, which sits at 252 South Street in the Two Bridges section, in with Lower East Side inventory doesn’t make sense. They argued that the tower — which is shooting for a $1.9 billion sellout — is simply not in competition with the other inventory there.
As The Real Deal noted, Extell reported that it has sold 15 percent of its units. "And it’s going after a mostly Chinese clientele."
The published results of the analysis did not mention who was No. 1 on the list of condos on the market or in the pipeline.

Extell’s One Manhattan Square is becoming more prominent on the skyline, as seen above from Avenue B and Fourth Street ... the 80-story residential tower, at the site of the former Pathmark on Cherry Street, will feature 815 one-to-three-bedroom residences starting at $1.15 million.
And if you keep walking...
One Manhattan Square will likely be getting some skyline company: three more large-scale projects are being planned nearby along the East River. As The Lo-Down reported yesterday, the Department of City Planning announced that a "public scoping meeting" for a Two Bridges Environmental Review will take place on April 27.
