13-11 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City. Only in Queens would a developer advertise architecture as featuring "textured manganese brick and smooth aluminum panels" and call it luxury housing. There are 54 units in this overscaled tower which looms above its neighbors. But, probably not for long. If you notice, the eastern wall of the building lacks windows, so that the small adjacent structures can easily be razed and built up to the same height as this gargantuan piece of Queens Crap. They call this building the "Echelon" to assure you that a better class of people are coming to gentrify this "blighted" area of western Queens. The idea is to make LIC look like a mini-Manhattan.
It's attitudes like those of Julia Vitiullo-Martin from the Manhattan Institute which have destroyed Long Island City. See, small frame houses = bad. Large Queens Crap like that pictured = good.
