☞ DWELL: FDB's Glass Coast finishes up 2009

One thing that is not debatable is that FDB/8th Avenue is getting glassier by the day. The Aloft hotel at 123rd Street (top photo) has started the process on its lower floors while its neighbor 2280 FDB down the block has its windows basically complete (second photo). The last photo shows the two consecutive blocks together looking north. Just another block south, 220 St. Nicholas has also received its windows this side of the year. All of these newer buildings should be complete by Spring 2010, so let's hope they get it together and secure some better retail in the ground floors (i.e. no more Dunkin' Donuts). Photos by Ulysses
