Call it a 'Boomlet'

New, 2 comments

It's official: We've got an apartment-building boomlet on our hands. Today, Blair Kamin takes a broad look at the city's new crop of budding apartment towers. He gives a nod to several "that aspire to rise above the level of the cloddish boxes that have suburbanized the city with their dull architecture" (Village Center, SoNo East), calls others "good boxes" (BKL's 'Building A'), and he sneers at Lake View Station, which, he writes, would "repeat the worst mistakes of the last building boom, stacking graceless concrete towers atop faceless parking garages." Go on, give it a read. [Cityscapes]
