Baharastani Alley - formerly 72nd Ave - is approaching new heights of hideousness with some kind of brick growth fronting his new office boxes (which replaced a block full of townhouses).
FAR requirements? Who cares. Zoning? A mere suggestion. Contextual Architecture? Say what?
I have no idea what those brick columns are going to become, and my guess is neither does Bahar. Just as long as their concrete and permanent, that's all he needs.
