The larger tower with the bridge and cut out rectangle in the middle, now, that is exciting. Nothing like it in the city and its frickin huge. This development will alter the area similar to One Manhattan Square in the LES.
The way the city is going, there is going to be a wall of towers along the East River stretching from DoBro all the way to LIC. And once the multi tower developments kick into high gear like Greenpoint, and Astoria Cove, it will be quite a crane festival on the river. Although I believe Astoria Cove is having some trouble now, but something will rise on those parcels.
