Mcgrath618, I'm like you. When I looked at that site on Google Maps & panned around, I surmised that's the only "low-rise non-historic building" Blumenfeld could be referring to.

Although there's other businesses that's located in that complex, it would make more sense to put a tower of that height and massing on that block. Allow the option for those businesses to either relocate or to be incorporated into the new tower, if there's a commercial included.

That's probably what Blumenfeld should've made clear in that he wants to keep the Lofts (renovating that and possibly the annex, which is 4/5 stories, at 15th & Mt Vernon) and the church intact on that block BUT across the Mt Vernon, he wants to build a tower
