Union Avenue Karl Fischer Now Totally Naked
The scaffolding and netting has been gone for a while, but the Karl Fischer building at 525 Union Avenue has finally lost its construction fence and has a new sidewalk out front. It's unclear whether some of the impressive tagging that the building acquired during construction that is visible from the BQE will be removed or what name the building will get. We're presuming these units will be condos. If they are, we can't wait to see what the pricing of this utilitarian building almost atop the BQE will be. On the other hand, within three or four years, it will be so surrounded by new construction that its corner of the neighborhood will be almost unrecognizable (or will feature some rusting hulks of abandominiums that didn't work out because of the real estate market crash).
