Another corner development on Fourth. An Alt 1 permit been issued for vertical enlargement of the corner building 561 Fourth (at 16th Street). Plans specify an additional two floors, making a five-story building, though to my uninformed eyes the rendering seems to suggest three more full floors. Eight residential units are planned.
With this new expansion, and the large development at Fourth and Prospect Ave. underway, the buildings in the middle of the block will be increasingly jammed in and overshadowed. The stores in the brick buildings next to 561 have remained empty for some time. I wonder what's on the cards.
