I know, but it's just simple things that could be done to make the buildings better.

Revealed: 20 West 40th Street, 32-Story Mixed-Use Tower on Bryant Park
http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/10/reve...yant-park.html

Read entire article in link:






Quote:
Last month, a rather unhelpful rendering went up on a construction site on Bryant Park’s southern edge, for a 32-story, 361-foot hotel and condo tower. Developed by Ziel Friedman’s HFZ Capital in combination with some mystery investors, the building broke ground this summer and will soon look out over the New York Public Library’s main branch.

And now, YIMBY has what we believe is the first (real) look at the 200,000-square foot structure. The provenance of the renderings is unclear, but the shape of the building depicted matches 20 West 40th Street’s zoning diagram. Its texture also bears some resemblance to the basic drawing that was posted on the construction fence

Nothing particularly wrong with the design. It's a little bland. Is that side of Bryant park not zoned for taller structures?

YIMBY Today: David Chipperfield Designing 20 West 40th Street



Quote:
20 West 40th Street [Chipperfield]: A tipster sent along word that David Alan Chipperfield has been selected as the design architect of 20 West 40th Street, to be developed by HFZ Capital. Chipperfield was also the architect behind the renovation and conversion of the American Radiator Building just down the block, heading the icon’s transformation into the Bryant Park Hotel.
This would look better opposite Lincoln Center...

Much better. It has that classic International Style feel to it.

Yeah, I actually like this design better than the old one. It vaguely reminds me of 610 Lexington Avenue with the windows.

I agree. I wonder if the facade will be steel or stone.

Still rather bland. Build something special. At least twice this height.

These gems deserved a better neighbor than HFZ will deliver.

That looks a helluva lot better than what was there before, which was a surface parking lot.

Yes , but the old building which was razed was even better.

David Chipperfield To Design Long-Stalled Bryant Park Condos

Quote:
Considering that plans for a tower housing both condos and a hotel on 40th Street across from Bryant Park have been in the works since, oh, 2008, it's nice to get a concrete sign that the thing is actually happening. The teaser site for The Bryant went live yesterday evening, revealing a) the project's name, b) its new architect, and c) pricing information. The name isn't as much of a surprise, given that folks have been touting the site at 12-20 West 40th Street as the last developable parcel facing Bryant Park since the beginning, so of course developer HFZ Capital would want to play it up.

The architect, though—Stonehill & Taylor is listed on the permits, and that firm is the architect of record, responsible for renderings that surfaced in November. But the teaser site touts accomplished British architect David Chipperfield as the design architect, the man behind the facade. Yes, the one responsible for the Met's next renovation and other high-profile projects worldwide. This 32-story structure, with a 230-room boutique hotel on the first 14 floors and 57 apartments on the floors above, marks his first residential commission in the U.S. Sales are slated to launch this summer.
Quote:
The teaser site's ability to sign up for information gives a hint at how pricey these apartments will be. The lowest range given for these one- the four-bedroom apartments is $2 million, and the highest is $10 million-plus. And now for some history. Before all of this back-and-forth about a condo-hotel, the site was a parking lot. (Currently, though, it's shrouded in blue plywood fencing behind which excavation work is ongoing.)
Quote:
Perhaps in part to detach The Bryant from its many stalled predecessors, HFZ is using 16 West 40th Street as its address, rather than 20 West 40th Street, which has been the norm over the course of the building's stilted development.

Personally I'm digging the redesign. It kind of reminds me of a shorter/squat lovechild of 432 Park and 610 Lex.

I think it fits the context better than the previous design.

I like the new look better also. Not the greatest but new look is better.

HFZ's proposed tower fails amidst these classics.


This turned out well.
