Yucky...seems like a missed opportunity for this location. This part of town is a modern mess.

42nd Street's New Pod Hotel and Residences Reaches Full Height
December 16, 2016
Quote:
The 70s called and they want their building back. The concrete fortress, which has fully risen at the southwest corner of Ninth Avenue and 42nd Street, would strike fear in any post-war commie-block. When we first saw the renderings in 2013 we were expecting the worst, and yet the new reveal has still managed to disappoint us. Standing 28-stories, 341-feet-tall, 400 West 42nd Street was designed by SLCE Architects and presents the public with a raw concrete exterior, a mundane array of transparent windows and rows of exhaust grilles above a sterile glass-fronted base.

Ugh! Who designed this? It looks like one of those Stern buildings. Is that painted precast?

It was supposed to have a bunch of pop-out windows, but was value-engineered down to something that should have stayed in 1970!
