Construction Finally Progressing At 54 Macdougal!

News broke out last August (2015) about the boutique condo planned at 54 Macdougal.  No signs of contstruction seemed to occur besides the demolition of the existing building.  Last week, Macdougal street was closed off and construction appears to have begun again.

Here is a link to renderings of the new building.

As stated on 6SQFT:

The 50-foot-tall building (not counting the rooftop bulkhead) is being designed by KM Associates and a newly posted rendering gives us another look at the building’s handsome red brick facade, adorned with exposed steel framing and floor-to-ceiling windows. Juliet balconies will front floors three through five, and the top is graced by a large arched window and a handsome brick cornice. Inside, the building will house just four condominium residences averaging about 2,000 square feet each. Window exposures will be along three faces, and according to Valyrian, interior finishes will be handled by the acclaimed Nicole Fuller.

While the building is out of place for the block (and looks similar to the Singer Building at 561 Broadway)

At least its better than an empty ditch?
