Was in town for a few days, so I went by the Fitzroy site.

There's a gray netting over the building, so the green color is muted right now.

The building will really look its best when the contrasting copper is added, and the sun is more to the north, as in the spring and summer.

















Here's a more direct view of some of the terracotta:

Is there some kind of protective film on the cladding? It is supposed to have a dark green glaze very similar to the cabinets in that kitchen.

There's a brown translucent fabric covering the entire building.

Terra-cotta installation underway at The Fitzroy





You can see how dense that netting is on the left side of this photo. Hopefully we'll get a clear view of the building from the street in a few months, maybe with the copper installation proceeding as well.

Some screenshots from video:

Did they get the right green?






It's a little dark. When I think green terracotta I think the Sun Realty building in Downtown LA:

That looks right, and it's a beautiful shade.

I don't know... The facade will never get direct sunlight because it's facing north. Lighter might have been better in my opinion.

The color seems to be very close to British racing green, and that's lovely, I think it's going to look very good with the heavy shiny bronze. The lady in the video is so enlightening, a real professional in this field, by the way she speaks you can tell how much she understands Art Deco as a distinctive style, with all the efforts on all those details. She also seems to admire technology for helping them out with all the terracotta blocks they need, now that's a real Art Deco attitude right there. More of this please.
I'd love to see another building following these steps, with the same amount of care for quality and relevancy to what it aspires to be. A switch in colors might be good for a similar project, for example dark blue terracotta with silver frames, and a pair of stainless steel statues (heroic) on the sides of a hypothetical crown that can carry light bulbs, something like that.

It's be lovely if all new classical-styled and Neo Art Deco buildings could be like The Fitzroy.
But heck, that sure must be super expensive!

Let's just hope such fabrication becomes more affordable with new technology in the not too distant future, including in situ fabrication, additive manufacturing and the likes...

Alternative design for The Fitzroy emphasizing verticality more

There's one thing that bugs me a little about the Fitzroy.
While two thirds of the tower are horizontally oriented, the top is soaring vertically. That doesn't ruin but downgrade the proportions slightly.


http://jdsdevelopment.com/wp-content...-gallery-1.jpg

I think they could have done better like this:


https://img2.picload.org/image/rgdip...-gallery-1.jpg

Credit goes to Kaoru of the German APH forum for creating this. Don't measure it in quality, but in the idea.


It'd extend the top emergence to most of the facade, and thus emphasize verticality and elegant slenderness on this midrise. Instead of stressing the already a little too wide, bulky chest. It'd make a more Art-Decoesque overall appearance.

But still, Fitzroy is a great design and it's leading the whole thing in the right direction, architects and developers really improved a lot on this whole Neo Art Deco journey in NYC.
