Dear Fellow Members of the Union Square 3rd Ward (and other patrons of the 15th Street building),
You know the townhouse that got torn down down the street from the chapel? The internet can't stop talking about the apartment building that's going to be built there, an excessively balconied monster topped off by a . . . uhm, escape pod?
Here's the website for the development, it's nutty. But I'll post the floorplans here, too:
If you've been struggling to find a reason to go to church every week, maybe monitoring the progress of this place going up is the excuse you've been needing?
BUT WAIT, there's more.
It turns out that the people that are building this building live in the townhouse next door and even though it looks absolutely normal from the inside, guess what? It's nutty on the inside! They've got a waterfall, fishponds, clear stairs, cavelike rooms, you know, all the normal stuff.
Here's a slideshow tour of their home from the New York Times that's worth watching if like shaking your head and saying "That's crazy. That's crazy."
Curbed coverage of the development (I stole all their pictures)
New York Times on what the neighbor's think. (Guess what? They don't like.)
