Re: NYC Architecture and Development

There was a Boston thread where we were discussing a super nasty blank wall. Does NYC have a law against them, because every time a giant blank wall is built, they clad it with the good stuff.

Manhattan's skyline(s) get uglier by the day.

Re: NYC Architecture and Development

Not a big fan of the Hudson Yards architecture... though the staircase monument is cool. Love 1 Vanderbilt.

I will always love NYC as the city that just never stops building.

This building will be 1550'. That's like stacking the Pru on top of the Hancock then adding a basketball hoop on top!

Re: NYC Architecture and Development

End of the pencil supertalls?

NYC proposing to end a zoning loophole that allowed them.

Quote:
With advancements in engineering and construction, that developer can take the accumulated square footage and concentrate it in a skinny mega-tower. Floors of mechanical space, exempt from the square footage calculations, make the tower even taller.

“There is no question that they have become this lightning rod because they are not just luxury housing but uber-luxury housing,” said Elizabeth Goldstein, president of the Municipal Art Society, a nonprofit group that seeks to preserve the city’s architecture and urban design. She said they were unaffordable not only for the 99 percent but also for most of the 1 percent.

Re: NYC Architecture and Development

Progressive NYC mayor Bill De Blasio has targeted glass and steel construction as an archenemy of the New Green Deal. All rank and file useful idiots will be expected to fully drink this latest koolaid and fall in line unquestioningly or else.
