A cursory look at this project is strong evidence that he's now pilfering his betters -- Ingels, Nouvel, Snøhetta, Hadid, Koolhaas...

Here's the current tower:
Couldn't they literally just light a billion dollars on fire, sell this tower, buy a different plot close by, build their 1500 footer there, and save a billion dollars in the process? This is one of the most ridiculous things Ive ever seen. Theres no way in hell this makes business sense this is a freaking 700' tower.... Sell the damn thing and buy some land down the street, theres buildings going up all over the city just buy there or rent out a Hudson Yards tower. Id love to hear someone explain how this makes sense.

If Wikipedia is correct, it will become the tallest building in history to be voluntarily demolished. The first on the list currently is the Singer Building,(612 feet/187 M) also in NYC, demolished in 1968 to make way for One Liberty Plaza.

Re: NYC Architecture and Development

When I was out in Chicago last I rode on the 606 or Bloomingdale Trail. The JC Embankment would be an awesome path like that.

Re: NYC Architecture and Development

havent been to this thread in a while. whatever that hideous monstrosity is towering over the empire state bldg is... a hideous monstrosity. i vaguely remember reading about it not long ago but, still, ugh. at least 432 park is simple and doesnt grab attention with a garbage crown... (i like 432 park, anyway, tho i know many dont)

anyway, stick, that NJ embankment project looks awesome, thx for posting that.

Re: NYC Architecture and Development

Was in Boston yesterday on what was one of those gorgeously clear and sunny Autumn days, and it got me thinking to how the Boston area is truly special in just how gorgeous some fall days can be. NYC's falls are quite nice too, but not as nice -- it gets maybe three of those days a year.

Anyway it got me thinking of some shots I took last year showing off some of those rare crisp, sunny days







candy corn cones?
