Lot line windows, ouch!
I've been watching this lot for quite some time, wondering when and if it would be built. It's 132 Fourth Avenue (13th Street), and it will be a 162 unit, 11 story McSam (Sam Chang) hotel. There is finally movement and the steel beams are rising! You have to appreciate that Sam at least preserved the attractive turn of the century pre-existing exterior. You can bet that some of the owners at 77 East 12th Street are wishing that the financial meltdown would have stopped this one altogether. Gotta hate those lot line windows!
