The only way to save the current building is to make it a landmark somehow, considering the stock exchange building next to it is conviniently a landmark, but that will never happen so I suppose we'll just have to stick with this wavy, modernist turd. Another sad example of money over art.

The preservation movement is quite strong in NYC. Hopefully stopping this will be one of their successes.

How is this building not historically land marked? New York must be full of the biggest bunch of idiots on the planet.

One after another its residents they sit by and watch as their historic architecture is destroyed in favor of indiscernible glass boxes.

^ If you have nothing nice to say about NY. Don't come back here! Ignorant jealous trolls!

It's fine to attack the architecture but you are taking cheap shots at New Yorker's in general.

I would call this a worthy replacement of the old building. Looks good at street level and it has a cool glass facade.

unfortunately they decide for Pelli's design, which look boring in my opinion. The facade could turn out very well, but I'am now less exited about this project.

The main problem is not the fact they are tearing down an Art Déco building( a good one of you ask me),but is the context of where it is.
I can't see any "New York feeling" in that crappy box,that could be built either in Dubai,London or Beijing.
Look at yourself .

Community board slams Trinity’s FiDi residential tower

Church and major property owner says it will consider neighbors' concerns

http://therealdeal.com/blog/2013/09/...dential-tower/



Quote:
Manhattan’s Community Board 1 slammed Trinity Church’s newly unveiled plans for a 30-plus-story glass building at 68-74 Trinity Place.

The sleek structure was designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli, who recently won a competition to design the new 300,000-square-foot building. A 175,000-square-foot chunk of the space is to be set aside for residential uses — one of CB1′s several bones to pick with the project.

“The building should look more in line with the neighborhood,” board member Joel Kopel told Curbed. “Tourists come here from all over the world and the last thing we need is another building that looks like it’s on East 59th Street.”
Quote:
The community board, meanwhile, has no real say in the plans, which are as-of-right. Still, the church expressed a willingness to consider concerns.

And you're saying this in the home city of Lever House and the Seagram Building.

Yeah, what? It's the exact opposite. The proposed tower is fine if unremarkable; it's the fact that they want to tear down that gem to build it.

I like the old gem, and really find it totally out of the mission of the church to build such a worldly building.... shameful because isn't the Episcopal Church supposed to be among the most progressive, socially conscious? I'm no liberal ideologue but it's probably one of the most appalling proposals in this era of economic struggles for so many even in what is termed a "recovery".
