The action at the former Cherry Street Pathmark is beginning to take shape.

Permits were pre-filed last Thursday for the Extell tower that will soon blight the community. While it’s not quite the 70 stories in height promised at the outset, the paperwork reveals that it’s still tall enough to eclipse everything in the immediate vicinity. The Extell phallus will rise a whopping 800 feet and carry 787 units. That equates to over 900,000 square-feet of residential space, and roughly 24,000 square-feet for the commercial stores (supermarket?).

Adamson Associates is listed as the architect.

As for the Pathmark building that continues to decay in plain sight, demolition is still on the horizon. Permits were initially submitted and approved back in January.
