Such a special building shouldn't look so run-down, then.

I think the 'Skieletor' in Krakow should restart construction. It's a shame for it to have stood as a skeleton for nearly 40 years now. Aopparently there are plans for it!

Current

Plan

The structure is still fine, so I've heard. All it takes is to renew a few broken areas and it's all set. The only reason they keep it a skeleton these days is because of land issues.

I like the art-deco render of the current proposal.

Is it new cladding or just a powerwash?

It is also set for height increase, although one crazy pro-eco dude is holding it back, saying that it would be a threat to birds that live nearby (how, I have no idea, New York is probably a slaughterhouse if we go with this way of thinking).
When (and if) it gets a green light, it will probably be scaled down to its initial height and have one wall completely blank, having elevator shafts there.
Here's a more realistic vision (facade details and color).

Also, birds? That's a really dumb excuse.

One Times Square could use a historic restoration, while keeping with the times of well... Times Square.

This classic building doesnt need a renovoation as Empire State Building doesnt need modernization...
Renovating it would just make it look less messy not change the way it looks, nice clean windows etc

Good one..Architecture of all the buildings are amazing..Every building need a proper flooring also to make it more lavishing..Isn't it? These days so many kind of flooring are in the market that can be chosen according to the type of building..
