Looks quite nice to me, especially the vibrant shape. I would be interested in what they are demolishing for this tower.

The building on the right is being demolished, and it's adjacent to a parking lot on which the new tower will sit.

Why can't they just build it on a parking lot or garage? Im sure they don't have to demolish anything in order to put this baby up! It looks like a great building but im not a fan of needlessly demolishing one building for another when it seems somewhat worth saving. Now that building in the middle is the one that should be demolished imo!

Sorry. My message was not clear. The building on the far right is on a block north of the parcel on which this tower will rise. It's quite nice. The building on the left side of the photo, the mediocre building in the middle and the parking lot make up the subject block. The building in the middle is being demolished. (I had meant that it's the building on the right-hand side on the subject block.)

I like whats right there already. This new building looks like its going to interupt that nice flat street wall effect that I love so much about ny. The new building itself isn't even pretty. I guess its because i'm a fan of art deco, neo-gothic, etc. over most modern designs I've seen...

could be taller, sure, but i think the tower's height is very appropriate for the area.

Park Avenue South's Fortress of Glassitude Actually Happening?Thursday, June 3, 2010, by Joey





The totally bonkers 40-story apartment tower planned at 400 Park Avenue South has been kicking around since the first half of the last decade, and in recent years has been tossed onto the pile of fantastical renderings that will never see the light of day. That was then! Now New York is enmeshed in the biggest Christian invasion since the Crusades, and French starchitect Christian de Portzamparc's glassy giant might actually have a pulse. (C-deP also has Carnegie 57 and Riverside Center on the boards.)

The site is a parking lot at 28th Street and the adjacent eight-story building at 396 Park Avenue South. Developers Albert and Roy Kalimian bought up mucho air rights along Madison Avenue to set the stage for the 436-unit building (which would also have retail and a new 6 train entrance) before the project went into hibernation. Now the parking lot is closed and a demolition permit has been approved for 396 Park Ave. South. There's oodles more evidence that the Fortress of Glassitude (working title; we're open to suggestions!) is on the way.

Such as this stuff. >>
A Curbed tipster dropped by the site and did a bit of snooping:

Spoke to a Owner Rep at the location (wouldn't give his name) says existing 8 story building to be fully demolished by late fall. New Residential Development to be built in its place. Parking lot by 28th Street is closed (Sign says it will reopen in December, but owner rep says new building to be entire block).
Of course a cheaper, non-Frenchie building might be the new plan, but interestingly the original building permit—filed in 2005 by architect-of-record Handel Architects—was disapproved only this past October, indicating fresh filing action (and maybe some imminent fine-tuning). A Wired New York contributor also noticed that 400 Park Avenue South, which has been on Portzamparc's website forever, now mentions a 2010 start and a 2012 completion. Kaboom! With the Gansevoort Park hotel opening one block up, this stretch of Park Avenue South is getting interesting in a hurry. Anyone else got intel?

This will be one of the greatest towers in NYC since a long time.

I'm dying to know what those two detached annexes from the building will be.Quite an uncommon feature for a residential building.
