Mega-project is underway

Residents living near the vacant lot at 184th St & Overlook Ave. have been worried for years about plans for a giant 23-story tower to be built on the odd-shaped site. Early renderings of the project showed a building that would dwarf its surroundings. AFter numerous false starts and delays, construction finally began last week. The structure will straddle the entrance to the A train on Overlook, and construction crews have already blocked half the entranceway.

There's even a bizarre bare-bones website marketing the soon-to-be built condos with an image of the final product: here. Many mysteries, and much cause for concern, remain...

There are rumors that they are going to fully close the subway entrance. Is this true?

I'm happy to see that you pay such close attention to new construction projects in your area.
One project may seem to
be insignificant to many
people who do not reside
nearby. Most people simply
drive by, thinking about
whether they like it or
not, and don't realize
how a neighborhood can be
affected,-and not just the
people in the shadow of
the project, -by one single
new building.
A neighborhood can be changed by many factors,
both large and small.

Good Work
-From Houston
