Not too sure about that Law School building. It looks slightly bulky and dull. But then the random shapes of the cladding on the residential tower looks like it will be interesting and give the building a real sleek, contemporay appearence.

YIMBY provides some news about permits for the tower portion:

http://www.newyorkyimby.com/2012/07/...t-60th-48.html

For some reason YIMBY also decides to dabble in demagoguery about the nearby public housing estate. Not sure what "Amsterdam Houses are notoriously dangerous" and "Crime is rampant" have to do with anything. I've been around those projects day and night and never felt it was unsafe. Perhaps YIMBY is referring to something else on the west side?

I went to Fordham & lived on campus. They were definitely dangerous. The only time we received security warnings were when students were mugged in front of them... not a common occurrence, but it still happened. It's definitely an area of blight on the UWS.

I think that any redevelopment should still replace all the affordable units, but it still needs to be fixed.

Then they need to move their law-school students to the placid Bronx campus, because it's getting way too dangerous in Manhattan.
