A rendering of 1110 Park Avenue
It’s certainly easy to feel for the good people who inhabit the two buildings that flank 1110 Park Avenue. Because of the L-shaped footprint, their windows now clear the two low-lying structures that stand between them and the street, affording their residences charming and highly salable glimpses of that famous boulevard. If Toll Brothers has its way, however, all of that will change.
A 15-story building will plug the space between the two tall buildings on either side, 1100 and 1112 Park Avenue, and the view will be gone. Naturally, all sides have lawyered up, as New Yorkers are wont to do, and there are efforts to landmark the area up to 96th Street, in hopes that that might stop the new construction. [more]
