What is interesting is that years ago the "Hell's Kitchen" neighborhood was one of the last rough neighborhoods in Manhattan. I remember way back, in the early 1980's - it was the place you could buy drugs ("crack" cocaine was popular then) and pick up a prostitute. As AIDS became more of a problem and Guiliani was took a hard line on crime the neighborhood started to change by the late '80's early '90's. Now it's an expensive place to live!

At least it will look better at street level. Looks a little awkward from above.

One blockbuster facade reveal deserves another, so hot on the heels of The Nolitan's big unveiling, a tipster alerts us to the happenings up at architect Enrique Norten's massive Clinton Park rental building for developer Two Trees: "Here are pics of the Clinton Park facade going up on 11th Ave on the the 54th Street side. It's interesting and matches the rendering, I think. Very industrial. Any new information on the huge health club they have going in there?" Sorry, we've been too obsessed with the Mercedes mansion in the building to glean any other info. We're liking the looks of things so far. Agree?








can't wait till they reach the upper part!

Jesus, that grey sheet metal cladding is horrible
This turned out even worse than the renders indicated. Might look good from the air once the trees are planted but from street level it will still be an eyesore.

The design is magnificent, but the cladding really looks like a 1970s commieblock. Depressing to see how a great building is being ruined

Not only is this a nice project, but the old Mercedes dealership near the Lincoln Tunnel is now empty and has A LOT of air rights. You know what that will entail!

In fact, this guy from the NY law firm Skadden apparently is involved in a deal:
