Holy crap, New City is going up fast. Just a month ago, the behemoth residential and retail mega-development was a skeleton of steel and insulation, however, tall glass windows have begun to climb the 19 story apartment tower and the rest of the development's stone exterior is coming along quickly. The huge development encompasses 8.5 acres and will contain 199 apartments, 360,000 square feet of retail space, 40,000 square feet of office space and a huge parking garage with 1,100 spaces when it is completed next September. It's still hard to say if the development will match its renderings, but so far, it's looking like it's matching up fairly closely.
