First Look at Rafael Viñoly's 55-Story Luxe Nomad Condo

NY.Curbed



Quote:
It's been nearly a year since co-developers Victor Homes and Lendlease filed plans for a new condo tower on the corner of Fifth Avenue and West 30th Street, and now that foundation work is about to begin at the site, new details about the tower are seeping out of the cracks.

[...]

Work is expected to begin at the site in April, and wrap in the fall of 2018

Hopefully this attempt at stacked boxes will actually happen! Looks great.

Looks like a whole new design. Or at least another facade.

Yeah. It looks like it has similar elements to the third design, in the rendering at the top.

As expected, lame design.

Full Reveal For 281 Fifth Avenue, 52-Story Tower Coming To NoMad
http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/05/full...-to-nomad.html



Quote:
YIMBY has covered the evolution of 281 Fifth Avenue extensively, first posting concept renderings that surfaced all the way back in 2014. Now, the full design has been posted to the site, as per the YIMBY Forums. The building is being developed by the Victor Group and designed by Rafael Vinoly. DOB records indicate it will rise 52 floors and 708 feet to its highest occupied floor, with the roof topping-out 728 feet above street level. There will be 7,927 square feet of commercial space at the base, topped by 209,417 square feet of residential space, to be divided amongst 141 condominiums. Completion is tentatively anticipated for 2018, and while the site’s old occupants have been demolished, there is currently a stop-work order in effect.

It isn't very original for NYC, (100E 53rd; Langham Place etc ) but with good cladding it could be a decent filler.

Falling Condo Construction Debris Seriously Injures Man In Midtown

A man was seriously injured yesterday when he was struck in the head by falling construction debris in Midtown. The unnamed man had been waiting for a walk signal while heading northbound on Fifth Avenue near 30th Street when a wooden plank came loose from a nearby safety panel and fell onto him, the Daily News reports. A Fire Department spokesperson confirmed that the man was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in serious condition just before 4 p.m. Wednesday.

"I saw a man laying upside down and he was bleeding very bad from the head," Anwal Schenwarie, 62, a street vendor who had been working nearby, told the tabloid. "He wasn't moving. But there was a lot of blood. His hands were full of blood, too. Blood was all over the floor. I think he was in bad shape." Witnesses told the tabloids the man was in his sixties or seventies.

Witnesses to the terrifying accident told the Post that two women rushed to help the man, while another onlooker stood in the street, directing traffic around him before help arrived. In February, a construction worker was seriously injured by falling from a Midtown building. In 2014, a man was "nearly decapitated" by debris falling from the Times Square M&M's World store.

The construction site has been given a partial stop work order from the Department of Buildings following yesterday's incident. It notes that a fence piece was taken by the wind and hit the pedestrian in the head.

The debris that struck the pedestrian yesterday was part of a wall around a construction site for a new 52-story condo building coming to 281 Fifth Avenue. New York YIMBY notes that the building will top out at 705 feet tall and include a spa, library, fitness center, and street level retail space. CBS reports the section that fell onto the man was a green painted "Post No Bills" wooden wall. Here's what it will eventually look like when it's done chucking debris at people:

This design sucks. Those stupid random "tumor" windows towards the top of the building are ugly and completely unnecessary. They make a boring tower even worse.

First Full Look at the Rafael Vinoly-Designed Condo Skyscraper Coming to Fifth Avenue

First Full Look at the Rafael Vinoly-Designed Condo Skyscraper Coming to Fifth Avenue
August 08, 2016
https://www.cityrealty.com/nyc/marke...th-avenue/5224

Quote:
Construction giant Lend Lease, who is working on some of the city's tallest residential towers such as 53W53 and 432 Park Avenue has published the first full rendering of their soaring 52-story, 728-foot condo-tower slated for 281 Fifth Avenue. Lend Lease is co-developing the project with Victor Group , who purchased the three-lot-wide site at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 29th Street, for $99 million in 2014. Victor tapped Lend Lease to handle the construction of the tower, and talks eventually progressed to having the international firm take an ownership stake in the project.

I don't like it. It seems out of place and very 80s. Then again, I find Vinoly to be incredibly overrated.

idk I'm wondering if it's just a terrible rendering. At first glance, it looks like a lot of concrete, but it's obviously glass. The design elements are a bit heavy, horizontally, which does look dated.

If it's the same quality as what is shown in the close-up image, I think it could turn out, nicely.

Officially had it with Vinoly. Someone put him in a box and hide him away forever.

What a horrible design that is. No cladding can save this.

I don't hate it, I think the cladding will make or break this

It's just a dark-coloured box. It's not like it's some sort of Grand Lisboa skyline-ruiner. At worst it will blend in.

Vinoly seems like an architect that developers hire when they really want to hire Gene Kaufman.
