22 Thames St. Deconstruction Brings Road Closure
http://www.lowermanhattan.info/news/...ion_55508.aspx

"As of Monday, April 15th, Thames Street is fully closed to all traffic between Trinity Place and Greenwich Street to allow for deconstruction of the 113-year-old, 10-story brick building at 22 Thames Street. The demolition is expected to continue for approximately four months, through late July 2013"

I have to get there and make a few pictures before they get rid of this building. Maybe tomorrow I will make a trip downtown.

Sorry, but these developers are pigs. I don't normally say that but this building is gorgeous. It is one of the most beautiful buildings downtown. How it isn't landmarked is beyond me.

As promised I went to see the 22 Thames St building. It is a very nice example of brick building. Especially the top
with rounded brick windows and crenelations looks nice - not that many modern buildings have these kind of details. I will be sorry
to see it go, but...

The building certainly has some baroque elements in its style. I really love it as well. Thanks for the pics.

Very sad. I can see it being replaced by a boring glass box.

This glass box isn't so boring. I find it rather unique. Anyway, downtown needs more highrases/ skyscrapers/ supertalls

the building is OK. I don't think the glass box will be boring here. Downtown could use some serious modernization.

Thanks for sharing pics John Flint! It's nice to see what will be razed.

This could be yet another skyline-altering building; permits for the Goldstein Hill & West tower were re-filed under Vinoly, and the design was altered to indicate an 841-foot 70-story building!

Demo is also progressing quickly.

You've got to be kidding me! I'm going by the site in 2 weeks and wanted to see it right before it comes down.

Apparently, this will be around 850 feet tall, as per the recently filed application.

Sometimes it's not about the details, but about the whole building itself. Still, they chose the wrong place to build this.

Good to see the blank wall behind this currently demolishing building will be covered. Plus, the angles of the glass should look interesting with 4WTC's reflections.

Wow, this will be skinny! Less than half the size of 70 Pine Street.

Not to my knowledge. Curbed posted renderings of a tower by Anna Selldorf which are posted in this thread. That apparently is for a nearby site -- not this one.

There also will be a "very tall, very skinny" tower by SHoP in an undisclosed site in Lower Manhattan.

Good, that thing is hideous. This won't be 250 feet from 4WTC, so that'll be really awesome to see. It'll make the Pyramid in the skyline even better from Breezy Point and Jersey City too.

By the way, when are you going to Chicago?
