NEW YORK | 770 11th Avenue ( Clinton Park ) | 106m | 348ft | 30 fl | Com

Normally it's not really worth mentioning a tower only 348ft/106m tall in a city like New York. This is a very special design and worth sharing IMO

i really like this one, though i think the tallest part could have been made even taller, to make it look sorta like an individual skyscraper, with steps attached to it.

that way itd have a bigger impact on the skyline.

The shape is very cool. The facade and windows are quite ugly though

So will it be possible to climb to the top via the sloping roof?

I was hoping there would be steps between each roof. Oh well.

Great area btw. A small park infront of your apartment. Close to 12th Ave and Central Park. And you have a perfect view on the Hudson River and New Jersey.

Probably not a clear view, but if you got an apartment on the 10th floor or so you will be able to look to the Hudson river (and even New Jersey). Right?

I think it's in the block where the Ford manhattan service is too. You know what I mean? You can also see on the renders that the lower part is pointing towards the river first so that means that the lower part of the higher part (sounds confusing) other said the tower doesn't seem to have a view at all. The top part might have a few of the hudson river but it all depends on the buildings in front of it. Also the stair structure ruins the view for quite a lot of apartments.

I understand. Not all apartments will have that view. Still, some of them will get a nice view At least the area is going to get better looking with this.

This area presently is an industrial dump. 11th Avenue is lined with auto dealers that operate out of filthy, broken down warehouses. However, as the far west side between 23rd Street and 59th Street is gentrifying now, this area will emerge as quite beautiful. On the adjacent avenues (9th and 10th), there are scores of beautiful old structures.
Yeah Hells Kitchen south + north Chelsea are totally shitty places. The Daily Show is filmed right on the corner of that park...a stones throw from the Hustler club and a few blocks from a nasty area full of exit/entrance ramps for tunnels and imposing municipal buildings like an open air train depot, a giant mail vehicle repair depot and a water treatment plant on the Hudson.

The whole Hudson yards project, if built, should revitalize (gentrify) the entire area. The only plus of Hells Kitchen is the awesome views of midtown you get while running along the river parkway imo.
