Luxe glass tower planned for Prospect Heights

Richard Meier is planning a deluxe mid-rise, which will go up right across Grand Army Plaza from me.

Does this mean I will never be able to afford to buy something in my neighborhood? I'm still kicking myself that I didn't buy that two-bedroom with fireplace and new kitchen on Fifth a month or two ago, and now I hear that area is becoming good-grocery central, in addition to having all my favorite restaurants.

Oops, maybe it won't be so deluxe after all. But that raises new questions: Can I leave my beloved brownstones for a glass and steel tower? And how will I be able to get in on this deal? Will I miss out for not being connected, like I missed out on DUMBO seven years ago?
