••• Don Thomas pointed out that the proposed addition to 308-310 Canal—the smaller of the former Pearl Paint buildings—also includes the building directly to the west: “Check out the orange netting in place. It will be a huge visible presence on Canal Street.” (The second photo shows the addition as seen from Lispenard; a construction platform blocks some of the orange.) It’s being discussed at the CB1 Landmarks Committee on Nov. 10.
