New York City's skyline is changing. What else is new? 

Nothing, actually. Actually, nothing.

Oh, hey, except that everybody’s favorite service provider (kind of, sort of, not really) and that building of theirs which has tainted Lower Manhattan’s spectacular skyline.

Verizon’s Lower Manhattan building’s getting a makeover, eight years after they said they’d get crackin’ on it.

Well, better late than never. 

The behemoth, located at 375 Pearl Street, has begun renovations.

Gothamist reported that the building we all don’t care for is getting something of a touch-up.

Their source (New York Yimby) says the project will deliver 15 floors for offices, and “three sides of the building on the new office levels [will] receive a glass facade.”


Sabey Data Center Properties has headed up the project, and we can expect it to be done by the end of the year.


But here’s the kicker: that stupid Verizon checkmark will keep any beauty of a building in check. Not that it matters, since we’re pretty much getting a new skyline in the next decade.
