I always wondered why the term NIMBY contains 'backyard' and not city, district, street, block, or anything else. NOW I KNOW WHY!!!

In anticipation of Otie's new Nordstrom renders, I had some fun and took a stab at combining the two:


Not sure I got the scale 100% but I think it's pretty darn close.

Nordstrom Tower is looking like Bloomberg on Steroids.

At least the antenna (spire) of Nordstrom looks muscular compared with the one on Bank of America Tower.

I wonder how do they counteract the swaying in such thin buildings. The damper has to be massive.

Sorry! I can't source it as they are a bit outdated which was saved on my phone, but hopefully this will help.

3 foot wide walls, that takes up valuable real estate, but you got to do what you got to do.

Holy crap, that is a work of art! Otie, killer job, you are definitely the king of the NY threads today.

Quick question: what's the story with the odd spacing of that white wall on the south side of the uppermost mechanical/wind break floor?

great work, otie. Were you also responsible for the renderings of the Nordstrom tower on YIMBY?

Looks like the pit has bottomed out and there's piling!

Looks like this should be moved to U/C

Stern to Unions: You’re Done in This Town

By James King 5/12 10:45am



Quote:
“I like what Michael Stern is doing and I want to figure out how to build more projects non-union.”

That’s what developer Bruce Eichner told the crowd at the Bisnow Multifamily Summit in March, with a smirking Mr. Stern, the young founder of JDS Development, sitting a few seats away.
As Mr. Eichner continued to gush over Mr. Stern’s well-publicized contempt for union labor, a heckler from the Building and Construction Council butted in.

“Boo…wrong!” the man yelled from the crowd before laying into the developers on the stage. “What about the people who build this city?” he asked. “What about the people that live in this city, that make up the city?”

Mr. Stern looked on disinterestedly—arrogantly—from the stage, seemingly unfazed by the exchange between the angry union worker and his well-dressed colleagues.

Maybe he didn’t care because he’d heard it before. Or maybe he did care. Maybe he was masking the fact that he was secretly thrilled that the message he’d been sending for the past year or so was being received loud and clear. His fellow developers, like Mr. Eichner, like what they’re hearing. They’re defending him. And they are already thinking of ways to go around the unions in the future.

Maybe organized labor should be scared of Michael Stern. This is war. The unions understand that Mr. Stern is their Waterloo.

It’s no secret that Mr. Stern, a 35-year-old newcomer to the New York City real estate business, puffs out his chest and thumbs his nose at the unions. He’s been portrayed in the press for the past year as an anti-union pioneer who is standing up to inefficient union bullies and who could potentially change the union culture of construction projects in New York City. Mr. Stern was recently named one of Crain’s New York Business “40 Under 40.” In its brief profile of the young developer, the publication lauded Mr. Stern for “turning the construction industry on its head.”

The article quotes Stern as saying a crane should be on site by early June.
