Another New Building Coming to Manhattan Avenue
It looks like the residents of the Greenpoint building called Loftology, which is the building on Driggs Avenue on the left in the top photo, will be losing the views from the back of their building before too long. (The building with the exterior wood veneer is called the Manhattan Park Condos. It was designed by Robert Scarano, who won an award for it.) The empty site above, at which construction is already underway, is destined to be a new 10-st0ry building. The address is 524 Manhattan Avenue and its 14 apartments will have views of McCarren Park, which should be safe. The block is a curious one, as some original businesses still survive in the middle.
