Why doesn't NY just raise those projects and build something inviting, more healthy and pleasant for the poor people who live in them. Cities around the world have been demolishing disgusting crime-ridden housing projects and building low-rise communities that are just all around better places to live. Those projects are disgusting and they take up too much of the city. They look like something from Red China, East Berlin, etc. Get rid of them NY.

Please tell me you're kidding. "Low-rise communities" for the poor in Manhattan?

Gary Barnett looking to Asia to fill Lower East Side tower

http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...ast-side-tower
Quote:
Gary Barnett, the developer who sold New York’s most expensive apartment, is marketing his newest and largest Manhattan condo project to Asian buyers first—with prices well below those at his Billionaires’ Row towers.

Barnett’s Extell Development Co. will start sales of the more than 800 condominiums at his Lower East Side property exclusively overseas, including in China, Malaysia and Singapore, he said in an interview. Apartments at the 80-story tower, called One Manhattan Square, won’t be for sale in the U.S until early next year.

They also won’t be breaking any price records. Barnett estimates that most of the One Manhattan Square condos will be listed at $1 million to $3 million. Homes in that range are in short supply in Manhattan, where developers—including Extell—have focused almost exclusively on building larger and lavish apartments aimed at ultra-wealthy buyers who view New York real estate as a haven for cash.

“We think that’s a reasonable place to be,” Barnett said of the One Manhattan Square pricing. “There are a tremendous amount of people who would like to own something in New York City but are priced out because everybody’s building super-luxury.”


....For Extell, lower price points are a good strategy to attract buyers in China, after a currency devaluation in August made the cost of buying homes in the U.S. more expensive, Miller said. The devaluation, and the prospect of another, probably increased the appetite of buyers in the country, said Miller, who recently traveled to Shanghai to give presentations to real estate investors.

On New York listings website StreetEasy, page views originating from China more than doubled in July from a year earlier. That was the same month that China’s security regulator banned major shareholders from selling stakes in listed companies for half a year.

“That just makes people more anxious to invest in a stable and secure and economically vibrant country,” Barnett said. “The United States fits the bill and New York City tops the list. We haven’t seen any slowdown in demand at all.”

nice! I haven't seen that rendering before. It looks better than expected. The facade looks like something SHoP would call for. Who's the architect?

Wrong place for a tower that tall.

Air rights. Can't blame a guy for using them if he has them.

But I agree that it looks out of place. And it seems unlikely that there are similar lots nearby that would create a cluster and some coherence.

Also, why that weird angle away from FDR and the street grid? So much for rebuilding the street grid and fixing the towers-in-the-park mistakes of that neighborhood.

That's just the beginning. This area will see many tall(er) towers in the near future.

This is all kinds of awful. The design, location, and disregard for its surroundings...

Disregard for its surroundings? Do you realize where this tower is? This buildings in the area aren't anything that I would really consider as something worth recognizing, also by 2020 I'm sure this area will be seeing a new era

It's a luxury tower surrounded by NYCHA buildings, FDR Drive, and the Manhattan bridge. So yes, it totally disregards and disrespects its surroundings; they're as much a part of the city as luxury condos are. Not only is it way too tall/prominent and obnoxious for the neighborhood, the area won't ever build up to match it in height or wealth.

Its too tall to be that close to the river. A Tower that tall should be several more blocks inland.
