The 110 Livingston blog picked up on a rendering that surfaced on Wired NY over the holiday weekend of a stunningly tall addition to Klitgord Auditorium planned by City Tech, which owns the land, and Forest City Ratner, which is coming up with the dough for the project. As The Brooklyn Eagle reported several weeks ago, the plan is to build 600 apartments as well as 300,000 square feet of academic office space on the site. The folks at Wired NY count upwards of 65 stories and estimate that, with the spire, the building could top 1,000 feet. Yowza!
