Back in September, the Curbed network conducted a poll: "Which city has the best blue development?" we asked. San Francisco's BL? lost by a landslide to New York's BLUE, with LA BL? standing in as the middle child. Our little-BL?-that-could is rallying: The beleaguered building has topped off its 21 story building; June 2008 is the projected date for move-in, and sales begin in early January (closer than it seems). Floors 2 through 19 will house as series of 2-bedroom units ranging in size from 950-1200 square feet; 6 penthouses occupy the 20th and 21st floor (at 2000-2700 square feet each). Interior renderings here.
