The stacked Tribeca brownstones,the pyramid,the Babel tower aren't for you a valid allusion to the past!?..
Anyway,i am a true Shop lover!!

Nobody thinks of Tribeca brownstones when they see 2WTC. That's just a marketing gimmick to excuse BIG for having little vision beyond 'stacking boxes'. And the Pyramids and the 'Babel Tower' have little relevance to NYC.

So is this jewel approved or still we could face to live in a world where this beauty won't be real?

"Nobody thinks of Tribeca brownstones when they see 2WTC": if on the right axis,I DO!

"And the Pyramids and the 'Babel Tower' have little relevance to NYC".: they have relevance with the whole world;what is New York!?
Moreover, Art Deco as i know was not born in New York!

Planned Brooklyn Supertall Rises Above a NYC Landmark in New Renderings
http://ny.curbed.com/2016/3/14/11219...s-nyc-landmark







Quote:
[...]
But there's still one more hurdle to clear before the project can move forward. Because the Dime building is a landmark, the developers have to present their plans to the Landmarks Preservation Commission for approval; that's due to happen sometime this spring. So take these renderings with a grain of salt—changes could be a'comin' once the LPC has its say.

When does the LPC actually vote to approve or deny this?

According to this article, it'll be "sometime this spring." Very informative, I know. http://ny.curbed.com/2016/3/14/11219...s-nyc-landmark

I'd be surprised if LPC doesn't approve. This LPC board is relatively modification/developer friendly, and they'd only minimally alter the Bank Building.

This tower is going to be so freaking awesome. Exactly what DT Brooklyn needs and what I longed for!

Incredible Neo Art Deco interpretation there, pathbreaking for sure.

They really can make a convincing argument, reasons why I Loved their Gotham gateway proposal lots of data to back up their design

wow great info.

That really needs to be in the OP for this thread. Pretty much tells you everything you need to know.

Its crazy one of the sexiest project upcoming is in Brooklyn. They could put this almost anywhere in the city and it would look amazing.

So glad Brooklyn gets this project. It could remain almost unnoticed in Midtown Manhattan, while it can really make a difference and set a trend of classy setbacked towers for Brooklyn.

Amazing graphics, and look at the material mixes -bronze, marble-, this tower will be an excess of greatness and quality! Go ahead!

Such thorough thought and consideration of its historic surroundings. Excited for Brooklyn.

In LIC, we have a landmarked building (Queens Clock Tower) that is going to incorporated into a new tower going up. But I think it's more building around it, then incorporating it. Not nearly as much finesse as this project.
