The saddest part is that the design that we see would have easily allowed for the Bancroft Building facade preservation, with the narrow-base tower rising right behind it. This building massing would have been perfect for such a preservation.

Anyway, here is the site as of September 1st. The first half of the video shows the rubble lot that remains from Bancroft and the backside of 8-16 West 30th Street, which awaits demolition, while the second half shows the front facade of 8-16 West 30th Street.
