It's been a while since the new building on 6th and 54th has gotten any attention, so here's a tidbit. It took a long time for the empty post-demolition space to take shape, but now you can't see through to the next set of buildings. There are even some doors and the beginnings of (tiny) balconies.
An interesting choice is the decorative grating on the top of the building. Trimmed in red brick, it lends a certain unique look to the building. It really stands out! I wonder what kind of roof deck this will have. Oh, and I want to apologize for implying that the building was a Fedders Building. It's clearly a Friedrich Building.
On 46th and 6th, this corner lot has been rapidly growing. Just two months ago, there was nothing but a yummy looking construction fence. Now the construction workers are rising above the second floor.
