An 'International Scandal' at 100 Franklin Street?

Curbed went to the Landmarks Commission hearing this morning that we wrote about yesterday, and reports that Tribeca residents came out in force against the application for the construction of two buildings at 100 Franklin Street.

The reused brick, which would be covered by a glass in the design by developer DDG, was accused of being out of context in a historic district characterized by cast-iron buildings, according to the account of one local resident in the report.

The same resident said the top of the building would look like a "glass spaceship that has crashed on the roof."

Another said that the design, if approved, would create an "international scandal."
