Let's hope so!
The detailed renders clearly show balconies, but in the video, they didn't model the balcony's, even though they rendered the surrounding buildings in full detailed, including individual pilasters etcetc

Think we should wait for newer renders tbh! But the rooftop would be very nice

What is with these horrible, Miami-like buildings going up downtown? I hope the design changes.

As per Yimby

Vision: 118 Fulton Street, 63-Story Financial District Residential Tower

Read more in link
http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/11/visi...ial-tower.html

Quote:
The assemblage at 112-120 Fulton Street has undergone several changes over the past few years: first, the site was reduced to 112-118 Fulton after a 421-a snafu, and then, Lightstone Group sold the parcels to Carmel Partners for $171 million two months ago.

Vague renderings had been released for initial concepts, but now, YIMBY has a look at what we believe were Lightstone’s most recent plans for the site, before selling to Carmel Partners. Gerner Kronick + Valcarcal designed the 60-odd story tower, which has a simple form, distinguished by a wave-like pattern running along the facade. We’re not sure if Carmel Partners intends to follow through with this design, and no new building permits have been filed.
Quote:
With the completion of the Fulton Street Transit Center, several residential towers have entered the development pipeline. Nearby, GK+V is also designing 5 Beekman, which will rise to a similar height. Both 5 Beekman and 118 Fulton will stand short of historic and contemporary icons like 8 Spruce and 70 Pine, but at approximately 700 feet in height, they will still be notable additions in their own right — along with Lexin Capital’s planned 800-foot tower spanning 75-83 Nassau Street.

The price paid for 118 Fulton’s assemblage could indicate that Carmel intends to build something even higher-end. While this is not a bad thing in and of itself, it does show how pressure is beginning to push prices in the Financial District through the roof. That is especially evident at 125 Greenwich Street, which Michael Shvo and a group of investors purchased for $240 million.

I don't like the white crown. Draws too much attention to itself

And it doesn't fit in the pattern of the facade.

it's a tall parapet, not a crown. There will probably be mechanical equipment like vents inside.

Per that video, it's not just a mechanical parapet, but the white box will contain at least one amenity floor (looks to be a restaurant).

Whether we call it a crown or not, it's pretty darn ugly.

The parapet doesn't really bother me. It's the horrid striped pattern going around the building... looks cheesy and awful.

A crew is working on the site today. Any news?

Edit: I should add that demo work appears to be complete. This site is flat and bare (and huge).

I think the design is ok. It certainly will be a welcome addition to the area.

I'm glad to see the initial "render" was merely a massing model, and while I'm skeptical of the new tower, I find the swirling facade to be its best feature.

Apart from 90 Nassau Street (the "Armeny Building") and 45 John Street, redevelopment of this entire block into multiple towers would certainly facilitate further revitalization.

It's a tawdry area, so a modest design was expected.
