There’s been an ongoing debate about what should be done with the area, but this morning, Mayor Bloomberg unveiled a plan (http://inhabitat.com/nyc/new-spura-plan-reveals-that-big-changes-like-an-andy-warhol-museum-are-coming-to-manhattans-lower-east-side/) for the SPURA site showcasing sleek glassy high-rises, a new school and an Andy Warhol museum (http://inhabitat.com/nyc/new-spura-plan-reveals-that-big-changes-like-an-andy-warhol-museum-are-coming-to-manhattans-lower-east-side/) designed by SHoP architects. Click through (http://inhabitat.com/nyc/new-spura-plan-reveals-that-big-changes-like-an-andy-warhol-museum-are-coming-to-manhattans-lower-east-side/) to see photos of what this controversial design will look like – we can’t believe how much the neighborhood will change!
