Rezoning Has Its Price

The building pictured here is being erected adjacent to the Adirondack Building on Vernon Boulevard, which was sold last year for an alleged twenty-two million dollars.
This picture was taken facing south.
A significant part of A|M was written at Socrates Sculpture Park, and when I was over there the other day, I noticed the pictured building- how could I not?
It looms over the Adirondack building, as well as over a remaining old mansion on 31st Road.
It is exciting to see kayaking and luxury condos on our once forgotten shoreline, but there is nothing idealistic or romantic about the profile this new edifice cuts behind its more storied predecessors.
