News came in September of a 12-story rental apartment building set to replace a row of eight small apartment buildings at 541 - 555 Fourth Avenue.  The rat poison signs went up several weeks ago, and the demo plans for 541 (see below) was approved earlier this week.  I watched the buy-up process for a year or so prior to development announcements, and you can follow the story (with links back) here.  Goodbye walk-up apartments for regular residents, and goodbye yet another piece of sky.  Hello to a building with a pet spa!

Correction (3/14/16) The demo permit was in place for 541. The other seven buildings got demo approval on 3/11/16.
